Özet

Molecular techniques are widely used in the field of parasitology to identify the genetic profile of the microbiological agents. Microsatellite typing studies are comprised of the amplification of polymorphic markers to analyze the fragment sizes using bioinformatics tools. Current methods need fluorescently labeled primers and size markers to obtain fragment peaks in ABI PRISM (R) systems and due to low discrimination power of gel electrophoresis, it is not possible to differentiate primer-dimers from small fragments
