Why SSR is codominant - (Dec/03/2008 )

ُvery articles i read RAPD is dominant and SSR is codominant . why! i want to know what does that mean.

after one years i have known the answer and i will tell you.

but I'd like to see your answers.
(i need to genetically explanation)



It is very simply...SSR are dominnat because you can see all the "fenotipes" of the marker, in other word you have two allele for marker at every locus (one for each omolougus crhomosome)...
In RAPD and also in AFLP you can see only one allele or presence or absence of eletroforetic band.
