A Mismatch-tolerant RT-LAMP Method for Molecular Diagnosis of Highly Variable Viruses
Authors:  Yingxue Li, Yi Zhou, Yingying Ma, Rong Xu, Xia Jin and Chiyu Zhang, date: 11/05/2019, view: 160, Q&A: 0
Loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) has been widely used in the detection of pathogens. However, there are usually numerous variants in one viral pathogen and primers employed in LAMP can hardly match all these variants. The mismatches ...
