Would it be appropriate to use DNA probes such as VNTR in DNA fingerprinting of a bacteriophage?

Expert Answer:

The genome of a bacteriophage with all coding sequences is small. DNA fingerprinting is not done in bacteriophages because they do not have repetitive sequences like VNTRs in their genome.
