Alec Jeffreys (the "inventor" of DNA fingerprinting) explains repeats.

Alec Jeffreys talks about how he came up with the name.
How a DNA fingerprint like this was made.
Variation between mtDNA (HVR1) samples from chimp, Neandertal and human.
Kenneth Kidd talks about analyzing human DNA variations.
When comparing Neandertal and human mtDNA, researchers found that the differences between the sequences put Neandertals outside the range of variation of modern humans.
In 1984, Alec Jeffreys produced the first DNA fingerprint. DNA-based testing methods have evolved over the years, but they still use DNA repeats as the basis for building a DNA profile.
