Hi everybody,

I have seen adverts for Taq extenders, even up to 40kb. Has anybody reached
these lengths?

I also remember some discussion about making your own taq extender. Could
someone remind me how to do it? Sorry for not paying attention before!!


Regarding primers with a mismatch at the 3' end. Has anybody used this
method to distinguish between the presence (or absence) of point mutations?
Any tips greatly appreciated.

Thanks 

Melanie
