Abstract

Several DNA probes recognizing variable number of tandem repeats (VNTR) polymorphisms have been recently introduced in the analysis of forensic specimens. They include lambda MS1/31/43/G3 (Wong et al, 1987), alpha globin 3’HVR (Fowler et al, 1988) and YNH24 (Nakamura et al, 1987).

These probes belong to different though related families of tandem repeats with different core sequences, and recognize clusters of alleles with distinctive molecular sizes.
