G'day Brett and everyone else out there, I'm thinking about ampifying a
6.5kb fragment, however it will be from cDNA. Is this pushing things too
far? There's a strong possibility I won't get the full transcript reverse
transcribed and then hoping to amplify such a large fragment may just be
Otherwise I could design primers to break up the fragment and then put
them together later, but this would take much longer.
Any help would be appreciated,
