It has been 20 years since DNA analysis was first used in the detection of sickle-cell anaemia. Here, techniques for detecting human mutations are reviewed. We describe direct detection of mutations using restriction enzyme analysis and polymerase chain reaction amplification to detect gene deletions, rearrangements and point mutations. Indirect detection of mutations include the use of DNA polymorphisms in linkage analysis.
