The technique that allows for in situ detection of PCR-amplified DNA and cDNA has improved remarkably quickly over the past 5 years. As of this writing, one can expect good results after a relatively quick "learning curve." The technique demands some skill in working with glass slides and cells/tissues. Thus, I recommend that one without experience in… (More)
