Microsatellites: the other hypervariable repeat sequence Microsatellites Repeated sequences: occur many times in genome ( >100,000 ) – SSR - simple sequence repeat – Hypervariable STR - Short Tandem Repeats - microsatellite SIMPLE SEQUENCE REPEATS Allelic variation in the number of di-, tri- or tetra-nucleotide repeats at a specific location ........... CACACACACACACACA. ........... – ..... CACACACACACACACACACACACA. ... .....................
