Fragment analysis with the Applied Biosystems 3130 Genetic Analyzer

Fragment analysis is an additional way to analyze genetic material. It has a wide range of applications such as;

Studying the variation of individuals in a  population using amplified fragment length polymorphisms (AFLP).

Identifying individuals by comparison to known genetic profiles by examining microsatellites amplified by PCR using a fluorescently tagged primer. Used by law enforcement to identify suspects also used in paternity testing (Heredity).

Analysis of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) using SNPlex or SNaPshot generally used to identify a single base pair mutation at a specific site such as screening for cancer or genetic conditions.
