Individual sequences in large sets of gene sequences may be distinguished efficiently by combinations of shared sub-sequences

Gibbs, Mark; Armstrong, J; Gibbs, Adrian


BACKGROUND: Most current DNA diagnostic tests for identifying organisms use specific oligonucleotide probes that are complementary in sequence to, and hence only hybridise with the DNA of one target species. By contrast, in traditional taxonomy, specimens are usually identified by 'dichotomous keys' that use combinations of characters shared by different members of the target set. Using one specific character for each target is the least efficient strategy for identification. Using...[Show more]
