1 Dwight, Zachary LawrenceHeterozygote PCR product melting curve predictionMelting curve prediction of PCR products is limited to perfectly complementary strands. Multiple domains are calculated by recursive nearest-neighbor thermodynamics. However, the melting curve of an amplicon containing a heterozygous single nucleotide variant (SNV) after PCR is the composite of four...2014-01-01
