Using ITS2 secondary structure to create species-specific oligonucleotide probes for fungi.


Oligonucleotide microarray based on ITS2 rDNA sequences would be extremely useful in identifying fungi within soil samples. However ITS2 contains phylogenetic information and duplication of sequences among taxa make false positive detections likely unless a way could be found to identify taxon-specific portions of the ITS2 sequence a priori. Examination of… (More)
