The simultaneous amplification of multiple regions of a DNA template is routinely performed using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in a process termed multiplex PCR. A useful strategy involving the design, testing, and optimization of multiplex PCR primer mixtures will be presented. Other multiplex design protocols have focused on the testing and(More)
Copying multiple regions of a DNA molecule is routinely performed today using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in a process commonly referred to as multiplex PCR. The development of a multiplex PCR reaction involves designing primer sets and examining various combinations of those primer sets and different reaction components and/or thermal cycling(More)
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has compiled and maintained a Short Tandem Repeat DNA Internet Database (http://www.cstl.nist.gov/biotech/++ +strbase/) since 1997 commonly referred to as STRBase. This database is an information resource for the forensic DNA typing community with details on commonly used short tandem repeat (STR)(More)
