MICROSATELLITE

Definition

Short (14-100 base pairs), specific, DNA sequence that is tandemly repeated within the genome. Likewise, even shorter repeated sequences (1 – 6 base pairs) are known as microsatellites. In both cases, the number of repetitions within a tandem varies from individual to individual, making them invaluable tools in the identification of individuals and in establishing the degree of parenthood between individuals.
