  • Publication number: 20090124514
    Abstract: Multiple unique selection probes are provided in a single medium. Each selection probe has a sequence that is complementary to a unique target sequence that may be present in a sample under consideration. For example, each selection probe may be complementary to a sequence that includes one of the SNPs used to genotype an organism. Single-stranded selection probes anneal or hybridize with sample sequences having the unique target sequences specified by the selection probe sequences. Sequences from the sample that do not anneal or hybridize with the selection probes are separated from the bound sequences by an appropriate technique. The bound sequences can then be freed to provide a mixture of isolated target sequences, which can be used as needed for the application at hand.
