Pyrosequencing Protocols presents detailed protocols for the multidisciplinary application of Pyrosequencing technology, all written by world-renowned experts in the field. This comprehensive volume enables quick reference by collecting the primary applications for Pyrosequencing, and supplementing each protocol with troubleshooting tips specific to that method. Chapters 1 and 2 present an introductory overview of the origins of the Pyrosequencing methodology and its key applications. Chapters 3 and 4 describe primer selection and the basic Pyrosequencing technique, and Chapters 5-7 provide methods for improving throughput and decreasing cost. Detailed applications for Pyrosequencing comprise Chapters 8-13, and the important aspects of data storage is discussed in Chapter 14. This comprehensive volume both highlights the versatility of and provides detailed protocols for the application of Pyrosequencing.
