Nuclear introns are increasingly used as phylogenetic markers. Here, we present a multidisciplinary approach towards optimal locus selection and amplification using Asian pitvipers as an example of a non‐model taxon, and raise the profile of length variant heterozygotes (LVHs) in intron loci. Taxon‐specific primers were identified using a bioinformatic approach, and also designed from existing exon primed, intron crossing (EPIC) primer amplifications. Eleven further universal EPIC primer pairs… Expand
