DNA Purification Form Single Cells
1 N43 DK52223-000,
Long term objective is to purify DNA of fetal origin, starting with a sample of maternal blood. Thtechnology to be used with a variety of Diagnostic Methods including Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)Genomic Hybridization (CGH), Electrophoresis. The whole human genome becomes analyzable for a fetuswithout invading the fetus for a sample. Steps already available at Applied Imaging include enrichmeautomated microscope. Operator editing of the cells found ensures that only fetal cells are used.light activated protective layer to stabilize the single cells of interest, while eliminating all otwill also design the means to remove the light activated protective layer and make the DNA from thesfor further processing. Phase II will join the Phase I methods with an amplification system (such awhole DNA of fetal cells is made available for further study. This will be joined to existing methoelectrophoresis, to demonstrate usefulness of the proposed procedure.
