Guidelines for Developing Robust and Reproducible High-Resolution Melt Analysis Assays

Classifying and understanding genetic variation between populations and individuals is an important aim in the field of genomics. High resolution melt (HRM) analysis is the quantitative analysis of the melt curve of a DNA fragment following amplification by PCR and can be considered the next-generation application of amplicon melting analysis. Careful sample preparation and planning of experimental and assay design are crucial for robust and reproducible results.
