Colloquium Random amplified polymorphic DNA ( RAPD ) markers and its applications

  title={Colloquium Random amplified polymorphic DNA ( RAPD ) markers and its applications},
  author={N. Senthil Kumar and Guruswami Gurusubramanian},
In the last decade, the random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) technique based on the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) has been one of the most commonly used molecular techniques to develop DNA markers. RAPD is a modification of the PCR in which a single, short and arbitrary oligonucleotide primer, able to anneal and prime at multiple locations throughout the genome, can produce a spectrum of amplification products that are characteristics of the template DNA. RAPD markers have found a wide…

Development of reliable PCR-based markers linked to downy mildew resistance genes in lettuce
Sequence characterized amplified regions (SCARs) were derived from eight random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers linked to disease resistance genes in lettuce, providing information on the molecular basis of RAPD markers.
DNA polymorphisms amplified by arbitrary primers are useful as genetic markers.
A new DNA polymorphism assay based on the amplification of random DNA segments with single primers of arbitrary nucleotide sequence is described, suggesting that these polymorphisms be called RAPD markers, after Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA.
Construction of a genetic linkage map in man using restriction fragment length polymorphisms.
A new basis for the construction of a genetic linkage map of the human genome is described, to develop, by recombinant DNA techniques, random single-copy DNA probes capable of detecting DNA sequence polymorphisms, when hybridized to restriction digests of an individual's DNA.
DNA Amplification Fingerprinting Using Very Short Arbitrary Oligonucleotide Primers
This approach, DNA amplification fingerprinting (DAF), does not depend on cloning or DNA sequence information and can generate fingerprints from DNA of viral, bacterial, fungal, plant and animal origins.
Fingerprinting genomes using PCR with arbitrary primers.
The generality of the arbitrarily primed PCR method is demonstrated by application to twenty four strains from five species of Staphylococcus, eleven strains of Streptococcus pyogenes and three varieties of Oryza sativa.

Single-locus genetic markers and those that produce gene genealogies yield information that is truly comparable among studies and answer biological questions most efficiently and also contribute to much broader investigations of evolutionary, population and conservation biology.
