The primers used are listed in Supplementary Table S1. DNA of whole 384 well plates was pooled and a PCR carried out for each plate. The positive plates were then subdivided into six column pools and 4 row pools Wholesale NFL Jerseys and the PCR screen repeated. Finally, individual colonies from the set of 16 identified from the pooled column and row screen were used as template to identify the individual clone containing the markers of interest.
