Scope note: Pequeños tramos de secuencias de ADN que se usan como marcadores en la cartografía del GENOMA. En la mayoría de los casos, 200-500 pares de bases definen un sitio de secuencia identificada (STS) que es operacionalmente único en el genoma humano (es decir, puede ser detectado específicamente con la reacción en cadena de la polimerasa en presencia de todas las demás secuencias genómicas). La inmensa ventaja de los STS sobre los sitios de cartografía definidos de otros modos consiste en que los medios de examen para buscar la presencia de un STS determinado pueden describirse completamente como información en una base de datos.

Scope note: Short tracts of DNA sequence that are used as landmarks in GENOME mapping. In most instances, 200 to 500 base pairs of sequence define a Sequence Tagged Site (STS) that is operationally unique in the human genome (i.e., can be specifically detected by the polymerase chain reaction in the presence of all other genomic sequences). The overwhelming advantage of STSs over mapping landmarks defined in other ways is that the means of testing for the presence of a particular STS can be completely described as information in a database.
