Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA Technique
Arbitrarily Primed PCR Reaction
Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA Technic
Technique that utilizes low-stringency polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification with single primers of arbitrary sequence to generate strain-specific arrays of anonymous DNA fragments. RAPD technique may be used to determine taxonomic identity, assess kinship relationships, analyze mixed genome samples, and create specific probes.
