Rapid detection of hypervariable regions by the polymerase chain reaction technique.

Abstract

The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technique has provided a substantial improvement for the detection and analysis of known genetic polymorphisms. Here, we describe the application of this method for the detection of variable number of tandem repeat (VNTR) sequences. With the use of unique oligonucleotide primers, flanking the repeat sequence, and the… (More)
