BACKGROUND PCR amplification of bacterial 16S rRNA genes provides the most comprehensive and flexible means of sampling bacterial communities. Sequence analysis of these cloned fragments can provide a qualitative and quantitative insight of the microbial population under scrutiny although this approach is not suited to large-scale screenings.

Enzyme-mediated reactions are a useful tool in mutation detection when using a microarray format. Discriminating probes attached to the surface of a DNA chip have to be accessible to target DNA and to the enzyme (ligase or polymerase) that catalyses the formation of a new phosphodiester bond. This requires an appropriate chemical platform. Recently, an(More)
