Multiplex PCR attempt 1

First attempt putting multiple primers into a single reaction. Apparently this will save money and give me the results I'm looking for. The negative being that some of the primers chosen have products that are very close in size and create doublet/triplets.


  1. Tim Hair (from previous run, but accidentally left at RT)
  2. Tim Hair (new 4-5 hairs with ok roots)
  3. Gennie Hair (4-5 hairs with ok roots)
