Because they are not part of the used to make our proteins. The other 98% provides mRNA sequence, and therefore do not influence the ample places where there can be differences in the makeup of any proteins, most mutations in intronic DNA sequence between normally developed, healthy people, even if the two people are closely related (except identical twins). nucleotides are benign polymorphisms. 5. The genetic code is redundant; some sequence variations, even in the protein-coding region of a 3.

Like STRs, VNTRs also involve the repetition of a characteristic sequence motif, but VNTRs involve the repetition of larger stretches of sequence than STRs. The repeated unit in a VNTR can be between one dozen and several hundred 21 22 C H A P T ER 1 : The Structure of DNA and the Variability of the Human DNA Sequence 14 The DQA1 gene was originally named DQa, and the reader may encounter it referred to as such in earlier publications. 15 The DQA1 gene encodes one of the proteins of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC).

Analyzing degraded DNA is often a matter of analyzing smaller fragments of the DNA than you do using the typical STR protocols. Because the SNP involves only one single nucleotide, the DNA can be analyzed in very small fragments, allowing SNP typing to yield information on some samples that cannot be analyzed using the regular STR typing protocols or even direct sequencing. 17 A DNA array is capable of illustrating an individual’s allele status for thousands of SNPs in one assay, allowing for excellent discriminative power with minimal processing time.
