PMID: 26459131
DOI: 10.1038/srep14629

[…] branching process model of pcr (‘model 1’) where the efficiency of the pcr (between 0 and 1) refers to the probability that a molecule will replicate successfully in a cycle. using this model, we simulate pcr and sampling, and show that the resulting barcode family size distributions do not diverge significantly from the expected poisson distribution regardless of the efficiency used (). […]

[…] (16s rrna) on a bacterial chromosome and beta-actin gene (actb) on a mammalian chromosome were designed as internal controls. amplifx 1.7.0 ( was used to simulate pcr reaction using the newly designed primers., 1accession no. indicates genbank accession number of reference sequence., multiplex pcr was carried out using a takara multiplex pcr assay […]

[…] mhv, the primers from parts 0, 2, and 4 were combined in one reaction and the primers from parts 1 and 3 were combined in another, so that short products would not be produced., we used the script ( []) to predict all pcr amplicons from the multiplex degenerate primers compared to the target sequences and to the ncbi nt database. […]

[…] (ttmv) (20 genomes, samples 11 and 14), echovirus 9 (7 genomes, validation for sample 5), and rotavirus a (7077 sequences, all segments, for sample 5). predicted targets were identified using (submitted, based on comparison to the llnl large (48 gb) internal database of all available finished and assembled microbial genomes […]

[…] using ten different empirical distributions corresponding to adjacent windows covering 200 flow cycles. a refinement of this simulator was presented in a subsequent paper [], in which balzer et al. simulate pcr amplification errors at a rate estimated by analysing ‘sub- peaks’ of flowgram values over the integer values adjacent to the correct value. mcelroy et al. [] propose a simulator capable […]
