inverse pcr has given me the bulk of my sequence that I obtained for a
A kit from Clontech now exists using adaptor-ligated genomic DNA fragments...5
libraries made from different restriction enzymes...the ref they give for this
nucl acids res. Siebert p.d. et. al '95 23:6 (in press)
all this is in their april 1995 clontechniques....go to their web site and see
if it is there...
other techniques i have used include..
RAGE (rapid amplification of genomic ends: mizobuchi et. al. biotechniques)
you can get the full ref for RAGE from http://www.biotechniques.com archive
but not the full article.
If you wish I can dig up the refs for all of them...but Inverse pcr worked the
best for me.
