Associated or complementary technologies

There are a number of technologies that can be used in addition to or instead of molecular markers in special cases, for example in polyploids where alleles may have dosage effects.

A few examples are given below, all of which are explained well in Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org:

Single strand conformation polymorphism (SSCP)
High resolution melting technique (HRM)
Taqman assay
