DNA identification analysis


DNA identification analysis
(fingerprinting)
   The characterization of one or more features of an individual’s genome by developing a DNA fragment band (allele) pattern. If a sufficient number of different size bands are analyzed, the resultant bar code profile will be unique for each individual except identical twins.
