Quadruplex genotyping of F5, F2, and MTHFR variants in a single closed tube by high-resolution amplicon melting.
BACKGROUND Multiplexed amplicon melting is a closed-tube method for genotyping that does not require probes, real-time analysis, asymmetric PCR, or allele-specific PCR; however, correctExpand

Comparison of the Illumina Genome Analyzer and Roche 454 GS FLX for resequencing of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy-associated genes.
Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is widely used in biomedical research, but its adoption has been limited in molecular diagnostics. One application of NGS is the targeted resequencing of genes whoseExpand
