chimeric PCR. How to avoid it?

Post by inaki » Mon Jul 18, 2005 9:08 am

Hi,

I'd like to ask some advice on how to avoid chimeric PCR artifacts. I'm amplifying using primers from 2 different DNA fragments that have high homology and I sometimes have the PCR jumping across and giving me a chimeric artifact

Thanks
