Results of the most recent PCR were extraordinarily disappointing. Despite practice, skill, and experimentally obtained optimization of the PCR program, something went horribly wrong. Most alarming was no visible amplified DNA. One or several factors may have contributed to these results. We carefully prepared multiple samples and repeated the PCR. Most likely and hopefully, the results, or lack thereof, were the result of a simple human error. If that is the case, then we should see more appropriate results from today's amplification.
