Is the anode positive or negative in electrophoresis?

Species that are positively charged will migrate towards the cathode which is negatively charged (because this is an electrolytic rather than galvanic cell). If the species are negatively charged they will migrate towards the positively charged anode.

What is the difference between the cathode and the anode?

Difference Between Anode and Cathode. Anode and cathode are two terms that are often used interchangeably with positive and negative in batteries. The anode, by definition, is the electrode where electricity flows into. In contrast, the cathode is the electrode where the electricity flows out of.
