Asfaw Adugna

This paper is aimed at giving comments to some institutions, which in their molecular biology/ genetics related job postings indicate that the incumbent must have very good knowledge on a specific marker. The use of molecular markers as basic and applied research tools in plant and animal biology have been used from decades. Various types of markers have been developed and used with different modifications all the time. They have been continuously changing with the advent of new technologies supporting them.
