Use of DNA fingerprinting for human population genetic studies.

Author information

Institute of Gene Biology, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow.


DNA fingerprinting techniques have been used in population genetic studies on many different kinds of organisms. Here, we present new applications for multilocus DNA fingerprint probes in population studies and demonstrate the applicability of DNA fingerprinting to human population genetics, using M13 phage DNA as a probe. The new approach, which is based on a factor method of numerical coding of nonquantitative data (factor correspondence analysis-FCA), shows good agreement between population position, as indicated by the three principal factors, and ethnogenetic proximity.
