DNA Profiling

Blood Typing And The Abo Groupings, Dna Polymorphism Offers High Resolution, Str Analysis, Vntr Analysis

DNA profiling is a molecular testing method used to uniquely identify people and other organisms. In many ways, it is similar to blood typing and fingerprinting, and it is sometimes called "DNA fingerprinting." Because every organism's DNA is unique, DNA can be examined to identify people who might be related to each other, to compare suspected criminals to DNA left at the scene of a crime, or even to identify certain strains of disease-causing bacteria.
