Analysis of DNA polymorphisms provides important information for the molecular characterization of parasite strains and clones. Because we still know little about the genomes of parasites, such analysis has to rely on methods applicable to any eukaryotic genome, such as DNA fingerprinting with multilocal minisatellite probes and the polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based random amplified polymorphic DNA technique (RAPD). However, DNA fingerprinting is cumbersome and needs large amounts of… CONTINUE READING
