Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphisms (AFLP)

AFLP description

The AFLP is a variation of PCR technique based on the selective amplification of genomic DNA fragments obtained by digestion with restriction endonucleases, in order to detect polymorphisms due to change at or near the DNA sequences comprising the cleavage sites of the enzymes used. The resulting PCR products, differing in number and size, are separated using gel electrophoresis to generate a banding pattern.
