PCR NONADAPTIVE GROUP TESTING OF DNA LIBRARIES FOR BIOMOLECULAR COMPUTING AND TAGGANT APPLICATIONS

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Using a universal and parallel battery of PCR reactions, we give a nonadaptive group testing method for identifying the individual strands in a pooled sample of several different DNA sequences taken from a DNA library. The method discussed here has potential applications to DNA taggants, DNA memory and DNA computing.
