Overlap hybridization

overlap hybridization --> chromosome walking

A procedure to find and sequence a gene whose approximate position in a chromosome is known by classical genetic linkage studies. Starting with the known sequence of a gene shown by classical genetics to be near to the novel gene, new clones are picked from a genomic library by hybridisation with a short probe generated from the appropriate end of the known sequence. The new clones are then sequenced, new probes generated and the process repeated until the gene of interest is reached.

Primary lambda phage screen - precipitated probe?

... both films are spotty to the same degree, few (if any) of the spots overlap. Going back to the procedure, I boiled the labeled probe (32P dCTP-labelled ... it on ice for a few minutes (to minimize renaturation) and added 1 mL hybridization buffer (6x SSC, 10x Denhardt's, 2% SDS, 0.2 mg/mL sheared ...
