Abstract morphism (AFLP) is a popular tech-nique that uses linkers to combine ele-ments from restriction fragment-length polymorphism (RFLP) and random-amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) methods to PCR amplify restriction-based molecular markers from random locations in the genome. AFLP markers are widely utilized because of repro-ducibility, high band yield per primer pair, and a priori sequence knowledge is not required (1). Automation using capillary array systems and fluores-cently labeled primers makes AFLP particularly appealing to researchers with large numbers of samples. Among the diverse applications for AFLP-based genetic fingerprints, it is most useful in breeding programs involving germplasm characterization and link-age mapping (2,3).
