AFLP Analysis

Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism is a PCR based genetic fingerprinting technique developed by KeyGene. AFLP technology has the capability to detect various polymorphisms in different genomic regions simultaneously, is highly sensitive and reproducible and can generate large numbers of marker fragments for any organism, without prior knowledge of the genomic sequence. As a result, AFLP has become widely used for the identification of genetic variation in strains or closely related species of plants, fungi, animals, and bacteria; has been used in population genetics to determine slight differences within populations, and in linkage studies to generate maps for QTL analysis. GeneMarker® software is compatible with output from Beckman CEQ™ , ABI PRISM®, or MegaBACE™ genetic analyzers; provides a faster, more user friendly analysis alternative to GeneMapper® for AFLP analysis and includes data normalization options. Unique sizing and pattern recognition technologies significantly improve analysis accuracy, requires less user intervention and provides greater analysis speed.


The software features high efficiency allele calling, adjustable parameters and various reporting options including a trace comparison report.

GeneMarker software's Large Fragment Sizing Technology expands and reduces the cost of the AFLP technique by affording extended multiplexing opportunities.
