ABSTRACT
Examines the variable number of tandem repeats (VNTRs) of amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) loci D17S5 and APOB in 100 unrelated individuals in the Basque Country by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification and polycrylamide gel electrophoresis. Estimation of population parameters; Analysis of neutral parameters; Validation of the applicability of the APOB and D17S5 to human genetic identification purposes.
