Abstract

The discovery of easily testing for normal differences in the DNA code among individuals has provided a powerful new tool for genetics. Using the principles of genetic linkage (page 11), disease genes about which rather little is known can often be traced. RFLP is an acronym using the first letters of the complex sounding term: restriction fragment length polymorphism.
