Bioline Scholar Monthly: January 2012 Round-Up
The first in our series of Bioline Scholar Monthly compilations focuses on the MyTaq™ DNA Polymerase Family.
Interesting set of papers for detecting the spread of novel genes from veterinary viruses.
Cadar, D., et al. Virus Genes doi: 10.1007/s11262-011-0650-4 (2011) - Genetic detection and analysis of porcine bocavirus type 1 (PoBoV1) in European wild boar (Sus scrofa)
Cadar, D., et al. Arch. Virol. doi: 10.1007/s00705-011-1125-6 (2011) - Distribution and genetic diversity of porcine hokovirus in wild boars
Study of woodland population genetics by 454 shotgun pyrosequencing & PCR. Lead author of the paper, Dr Olivier Lepais, commented:
"We used MyTaq to screen for suitable microsatellite markers in simplex PCR. We found that MyTaq Mix gave great results and was very easy to work with. This ease of use was critical as the primer screening involved a high number of independent PCR mixes!"
