Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA (RAPD)

Random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) technique is a PCR-based technique. It uses a series of oligonucleotide single strands with different randomly arranged base sequences as primers to separate the genomic DNA studied by PCR amplification polyacrylamide or agarose electrophoresis, and detect the polymorphism of amplified DNA fragments by staining or autoradiography. The polymorphism of DNA fragments of these amplified products reflects the DNA polymorphism of the corresponding regions of the genome. RAPD can detect the polymorphism of the whole mitochondrial genomic DNA. [url][/url]
