My question is what if any effect does all that Mg++ have on your
polymerase of choice? My concern is that there could be a reduction in
fidelity leading to an increase in sequence changes in the PCR product.
Has anybody got some experience with sequencing PCR products produced at
such high Mg concentrations?
