Ligase Chain Reaction.  It's another nucleic acid amplification
technique.  Used commercially by Abbott diagnostics for
chlamydia, gonorrhoea and TB amongst other things.

Since you're at Flinders go see David Gordon and have a chat
with him about the different technology available.  I'm not sure
what they're using in the diagnostic laboratory there.
