I would be glad to, but in this group I only see alot of standard questions
about what people think is LA-PCR, ie. the amplification of 6-10 kb, which
I don't believe is really long PCR. Also, the answers are more or less the
same and I haven't seen any real progress with conditions different from that
published by Wayne Barnes. If you know of any "better" methods, please post
and discuss them. I'll be happy to produce a review if there are good tips
posted that seem to work.
