Does anyone have any brilliant ideas on how to quickly and simply detect 
mismatches in DNA, other than using the mismatch repair enzymes or 
resolvases, or the osmium tetroxide method? We want to localize mutations 
in our lambda PCR products, to speed up sequencing (i.e. if you know 
where the mutation is, you can select the correct sequencing primer). I 
will post a summary, if I receive sufficient response.
