 VARIANTS / AFLP:AMPLIFIED FRAGMENT LENGTH POLYMORPHISMS

 

Selected and organized links about AFLP generalities, protocols and applications.


Definition
AFLP-PCR was originally described by Zabeau & Vos in 1993. The procedure of this technique is divided into three steps: 1)Digestion of total cellular DNA with one or more restriction enzymes and ligation of restriction half-site specific adaptors to all restriction fragments. 2)Selective amplification of some of these fragments with two PCR primers that have corresponding adaptor and restriction site specific sequences. 3) Electrophoretic separation and amplicons on a gel matrix, followed by visualisation of the band pattern.
