PCR based molecular markers

Glass Main Door Plan

Random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPDs) are in fact just one example of a whole set of PCR-based molecular markers, which have been collectively termed as MAAP, multiple arbitrary amplicon profiling (Caetano-Anolles, 1993). These approaches have in common the use of one, usually, or two primers of random sequence to amplify multibanded fingerprints from a complex genome (Fig. 1.8). The techniques differ in the length and sequence of the primers, number of amplification cycles, temperature of...
