  5. Snapback Primers for Genotyping and Mutation Scanning

    SBC: IDAHO TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this Fast-Track STTR is to develop a simple, inexpensive, closed-tube PCR method for genotyping and sequence variant scanning. Instead of covalently-labeled probes, one of two primers includes a tail w ith a probe element. After asymmetric PCR, this tail anneals internally to the same strand, snapping back , to form a stem/loop structure. Bot ...
