Title: Cellular Fingerprint
Description: Cellular fingerprint: This electropherogram demonstrates the STR (short tandom repeat) technique NIST will use to identify human cell lines. The chart shows (in grey) specific locations, or loci, on the DNA chain of a human chomosome that are known to harbor short repeating sequences of DNA bases of varying lengths. The peaks count the actual number of such repeats at each locus. If the STRs at a sufficient number of loci are counted this wayNIST uses eight locithe chances of a random match are approximately 100 million to one.
