RFLP

abbreviation for
(Genetics) restriction fragment length polymorphism: any variation in DNA between individuals revealed by restriction enzymes that cut DNA into fragments of different lengths in consequence of such variations. It is used forensically and in the diagnosis of hereditary disease. Also called: riflip

RFLP

(ˈrɪfˌlɪp)
n.
restriction fragment length polymorphism: a fragment of DNA, cut by a restriction enzyme, that is different in length for each genetically related group and is used to trace family relationships. Also called riflip.
