Can I do gene tiling or scanning using rhAmpSeq assays?

No, currently rhAmpSeq assay designs do not support gene tiling or scanning. At this time, only discrete "hotspot" SNP or indel targets are acceptable design inputs.

Tips: Targets that are too close in proximity can result in overlapping assays that amplify very short and long "super" amplicons. To ensure these unintended amplicons do not interfere with performance, we recommend that individual targets be at least 600 nt apart.
