An agarose is a polysaccharide polymer material, generally extracted from seaweed. Agarose is a linear polymer made up of the repeating unit of agarobiose, which is a disaccharide made up of D-galactose and 3,6-anhydro-L-galactopyranose. Agarose is one of the two principal components of agar, and is purified from agar by removing agar’s other component, agaropectin.
Agarose is frequently used in molecular biology for the separation of large molecules, especially DNA, by electrophoresis. Slabs of agarose gels (usually 0.7 - 2%) for electrophoresis are readily prepared by pouring the warm, liquid solution into a mold. A wide range of different agaroses, of varying molecular weights and properties are commercially available for this purpose.

I want a word for this as well!
This NASA Earth Oservatory shot of Canyon de Chelly in Arizona illustrates this tree-like branching pattern quite well.
While fractals are certainly at play in these sort of natural patterns, mathematicians have a more specific term for this specific branching/sub-branching behavior: “ramification”.
Here’s a scientific study on the ramification of river networks, so you can see how they’re made. The magic number is 72˚.
Anastomosis is my favorite word describing a branching behavior. The verb is “to anastomose.” It’s not just when something branches, but when it comes back together after branching (as capillaries do.)
This is an anastomosing river.
