Parallel genome analysis by two-dimensional DNA typing

Article metrics

By two-dimensional (2-D) DNA typing a restriction enzyme digest of genomic DNA can be resolved on the basis of both size and base-pair sequence and subsequently analysed by repeat probe hybridization to reveal sequence variants at multiple genomic sites in parallel. The system has been partly automated and allows for large-scale comparative analysis of complex genomes in a cost-effective manner.
