  • Genetic Markers
    • RFLP's
      • Restrictions fragment length polymorphisms
      • When cut, the fragments can be separated by gel electrophoresis.
      • Diff. fragment lengths produced when a spec. Restriction endo. enzyme is used to cut diff. DNA molecules.
    • MRSs
      • Microsatellite Repeat Sequences
      • Used for Gel Electrophrosis
      • Short runs of 2/3/4 bases found in non-coding region of DNA.
    • SNPs
      • Single Nucelotide Polymorphisms
      • Diff. single nucelotides within samples of DNA molecules
      • Cystic Fibrosis
