Abstract

See full text

Polynucleotide sequences and cloned DNA fragments useful for visualizing DNA polymorphism and other genetic analyses are disclosed herein. Specifically, polynucleotide probes and methods are employed to identify Variable Tandem Repeat (VTR) polymorphisms useful in paternity determination, forensics testing, disease diagnostics, cell line identification, ro chimerism/mosaicism determination as in distinguishing zygosity or following transplantation.
