Abstract

The analysis of highly polymorphic regions of mitochondrial DNA is one of the most commonly used methods for personal identification. The recent advances of fluorescent detection in automated DNA sequencing (Smith et al. 1986) has made it possible a rapid analysis of sequence variants without using isotopic labeling.
