For the sake of consistency, the original 1, 2, 3 nomenclature was kept, and a second number was added behind the original number to indicate the subregion. Further improvements in resolution have warranted expanding this system of nomenclature to two decimal points. marker does not lie within a gene; these markers are named according to the chromosome on which they reside. For example, the marker D15S113 is named as it is because it is part of the DNA sequence (D); it is on chromosome 15 (15); its sequence only occurs once in the human genome, and it is therefore single-copy (S); and it is the 113th such marker to have been submitted to the human genome database at the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), which serves as the primary repository for all human (and other organisms’) DNA sequences.

There are many places where the sequences of human DNA and the DNA of other higher primates are similar enough that it can be hard to design a probe that will only hybridize to one species’ DNA. Therefore, in the unlikely event that a piece of evidence would contain a mixed human–gorilla or human–chimpanzee bloodstain, the investigator would not be able to specifically quantify the human DNA.
If one first uses the PCR to make a million copies of the STR, however, the increased concentration of the STR sequence will make it much easier to analyze the STR’s sequence apart from the rest of the DNA molecule. Just as the operator of a photocopier can specify which pages of a book the photocopier copies, the investigator designs the PCR to copy just that 200–400 bp stretch of DNA that contains the STR of interest. After the PCR is finished, the amplified sequence of interest is present in far greater concentration than any of the other sequences in the DNA molecule.
