The DNA Sequencing committee of ABRF received more than 230
chromatograms by the deadline which was just two weeks ago. The good
news is that everyone did quite well with a very GC rich template. This
means that the committee has over 15 million bases to analyze and
compare so they may present prelininary data at the ABRF meeting Feb 10
in Baltimore. After the meeting the data and paper will be published on
the ABRF web site.
We thank all who sent multiple submissions of DMSO additions or altered
thermal cycle conditions.
Only two submissions were run at 4X conditions so any comparisons of 4X
to 2X would be anecdotal at best and so will not be presented.
