though I tried hard, I cannot find the explanation of how is made the "name" of genetic markers (microsatellites). Example: D6S310. What does "D" stands for? What "s"? I supposed the first number (6 in this example) is the number of chromosome, where is the marker localized, but I found some cases where this number does not correspond to chromosome number. And the second number, in this case 310? Is it the original order at the position on the chromosome? I experienced that with new methods positions of these microsatellites on the chromosome is sometimes changing....
Thank you for response.
