A self-replicating DNA molecule that
transfers a DNA segment between host cells
In DNA cloning, the plasmid or phage
chromosome used to carry the cloned DNA segment.
method that enables the amplification of specific DNA fragments in situations where the sequence
of only one primer
is known. Thus, it extends the application
of PCR to
DNA where the sequence information
is only available at one end.

VNTR ( variable
number of tandem
Locus that is hypervariable
because of tandemly repeated DNA sequences. Presumably variability is
generated by unequal crossing over or slippage during replication. A
chromosomal locus at which a particular repetitive sequence is present in
different numbers in different individuals of a population or in the two
different chromosome homologues in one diploid individual.
Linear arrangement of multiple copies of
short repeated DNA sequences that vary in length and are highly
polymorphic, making them useful as markers in linkage analysis
A class of polymorphism characterised by the
highly variable copy number of identical or closely related sequences.
