ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study which described a protocol for reducing the time and costs of microsatellite based screening. The screening includes the selection of microsatellite markers close to the deafness genes, which leads to a decrease in the number of markers needed to screen for each locus. Hearing loss is said to be the most common sensorineural defects in humans and autosomal-recessive nonsyndromic hearing loss is the most frequent form of deafness. Findings showed possible improvements in the genotyping process by multiplexing more markers together and by utilizing additional fluorochromes.
