Taqman probe design using FISH probe (need help)

... thus releasing the fluorescence (quenched in intact probe) that will be measured to quantify the starting level of template. Therefore, you can design primers and probes so that they will fall within the sequence recognized by the FISH probe. you can easily find instructions for designing good ...
