Dominant markers, as RAPDs and high-efficiency markers (like AFLPs and SMPLs), allow the analysis of many loci per experiment within requiring previous information about their sequence.

Codominant markers (RFLPs, microsatellites, etc) allow the analysis of only a locus per experiment, so they are more informative because the allelic variations of that locus can be distinguished. As a consequence, you can identify linkage groups between different genetic maps but, for their development it is precised to know the secuence.
