NEW YORK, Oct. 26 (GenomeWeb News) - Applied Biosystems has released into the public domain primer-pair designs for detection of DNA sequence variants associated with disease and other phenotypes, the company said today.
ABI contributed more than 400,000 PCR primer-pair designs for nearly 16,000 human genes. The primer sequences will be available through a Probe Database developed by the National Center for Biotechnology Information.
ABI developed a genome-wide resequencing primer set with Celera Genomics through the Applera Genome Project. ABI developed the VariantSEQr Resequencing System to detect sequence variants in human genes using these data.
