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).
  • Comparing known genetic profiles to identify individuals by examining microsatellites amplified by 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. Processes generally used to identify single base pair mutations at a specific site, like cancer or genetic condition screenings.
