Using Satellite DNA for DNA profiling

Postby noobo4 » Sat Dec 31, 2011 3:45 pm

Hey

a short question: I read that Satellite DNA can't be used for DNA profiling, as it is just 'too large', in contrast to mini and micro satellites. Why is this the case? Is it just to difficult to amplify?

best regards,

I guess because it would not be that accurate

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
