Dear Ed,

Try reaching Dr. Dennis Kunimoto of the U. of Alberta. His lab just recently 
reported a ligation-mediated PCR for M. tuberculosis. They used primers 
based on the IS6110 sequence.

P. Pallitapongarnpim, S. Chomyc, A. Fanning, and D. Kunimoto [Department
of Medical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases, U. of Alberta, Edmonton,
Alberta, Canada] (1993) DNA fingerprinting of Mycobacterium tuberculosis
isolates by ligation-mediated PCR. Nucl. Acids Res. 21(3): 761-762.

Best of luck! :-)
