A bioanalytical scheme is described for bar coding objects with DNA. Several DNA templates of different lengths are mixed together and the mixture used to label the object of interest. To disclose the bar code, the DNA mixture is eluted from the object, amplified by the polymerase chain reaction with a universal pair of primers, and then the amplified templates resolved by agarose gel electrophoresis. In its present state, the bar coding scheme allows for over a million different labels. The… CONTINUE READING
