RFLP

Restriction fragment length polymorphism Molecular medicine A local variation in the DNA sequence of an individual which may be detected by restriction endonucleases–which 'cut' the double-stranded DNA whenever they recognize a certain highly-specific oligonucleotide sequence or 'restriction' site.

The mixed infections in the total population were found to be 15.2% by RFLP and only 2% by PCR analysis alone, hence, indicating higher sensitivity and easy detection of mixed genotype infections by RFLP, as the RFLP analysis detected more number of mixed infections in comparison with the PCR method.
