Discussion of RFLP Data for the General Public

What is a RFLP?

A RFLP (or restriction fragment length polymorphism) results when a particular cutting agent can cut a particular region of DNA differently in two different individuals, resulting in pieces of different lengths.

What value does storing and studying RFLP data have?

Evidence of a RFLP is a clear indication of some distinct genetic variation between two individuals. Thus, studying RFLP information can help shed light on what causes differences between organisms of the same species.

What is the connection between corn and RFLP data?

RFLPs are one method of describing different corn varieties on a genetic basis. Thus, this information is important in terms of many scientific studies on variations.
