The search for more informative markers gave rise to two types of genetic marker that are fundamentally different from RFLPs. VNTRs or minisatellites (the first-generation DNA fingerprinting tools) are DNA repeat sequences whose core ranges from 9 to 70 bp and that are arranged head-to-tail in tandem array. The number of repeats varies between individuals from 10 to 150 copies. Although polymorphic, their non-random distribution limits their use in mapping the full length of a chromosome. They can be detected using Southern blotting or PCR.

Genes may be composed of many exons. Gene The molecular blueprint of cells; it is composed of a coding region (exons and introns) and a control region (promoter region and upstream activating elements or enhancers). Genotype The genetic composition of an individual. Heterozygote The alleles of a gene inherited from male and female parents are different. Homozygote Both alleles of a gene inherited from male and female parents are identical for the trait of a particular gene. Intron The intervening sequence between exons, which does not code for protein and must be spliced out prior to translation.

The polymorphism is revealed after Southern blotting with a DNA probe or can be detected using a PCR-based assay. Genetic markers are given a score based on the degree of polymorphism that they uncover in a population (the polymorphism information content or PIC value). e. it is monomorphic) while a PIC value of 1 indicates that the marker is polymorphic between all individuals tested. 5. The search for more informative markers gave rise to two types of genetic marker that are fundamentally different from RFLPs.
