How about a reference or two on that.  I am not sure about how to biotinylate 
the primer, ie how many biotins per primer, how much does the biotin affect the 
PCR reaction , and how do you determine how many/much of the magnetic particles 
do you add per estimated biotin content?

Lots of questions huh?  

Thanks in advance
