Variable number of tandem repeats (VNTR) stands for a tandem repeat which has variation in length and the number of repeated segments between individuals. VNTRs are useful as molecule markers in many applications, such as DNA fingerprinting, genetic disease analysis and molecular typing of prokaryotes. It costs a large amount of money and time to identify(More)
