Microsatellite, as related to genomics, describes a short segment of DNA, usually one to six or more base pairs in size, that is duplicated multiple times in sequence at a specific genomic location. These DNA series are generally non-coding. The variety of repeated sectors within a microsatellite sequence usually differs amongst people, which makes them beneficial as polymorphic pens for examining inheritance patterns in families or for producing a DNA fingerprint from criminal offense scene samples. Microsatellites are small pieces of DNA that repeat. They are usually only a few of the DNA base set letters in size.
