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

The RFLP data were used to estimate two diversity indices: the Shannon diversity index H', a general diversity index, which considers both species richness and evenness [24]; and Pielou's evenness index J, uniformity of the distribution of individual [25] and coverage, the portion of the actual diversity that has been sampled [26].
