New Capture Method Enables MPI Team to Sequence Five Neandertal Mitochondrial Genomes

The method, called primer extension capture, or PEC, is especially suited for capturing short DNA fragments in order to sequence a few small genomic regions in large numbers of individuals. Originally developed to analyze areas of interest in the Neandertal nuclear genome, it might also be useful for other types of targeted sequencing applications.
