Transition is a type of nucleotide-pair mutation involving the replacement of a purine with another purine, or of a pyrimidine with another pyrimidine (e.g. GC with AT). This mutation is much more common than a transversion. The mouth swabs with buccal epithelial cells were air-dried at room temperature, then alkaline extraction was accomplished by soaking with 20 mL 0.2 M NaOH and incubated for 5–6 min at 75°C. The extracts were neutralized with 0.02 M Tris-HCl, pH 7.5,, During PCR, The result of a SNP genotyping assay on the ABI 7900HT will report each sample as homozygous for either allele, or as heterozygous. The raw fluorescent data obtained from each assay, as well as the genotype calls made by the software, are exported to a spreadsheet. This protocol also includes the use of the instrument PyroSequencer (Biotage) and the PSQ 96HS SNP Reagent Kit which contained the enzyme and substrate mixture and nucleotides. Pyrosequencing™ is a gel-free, sequencing-by-synthesis method. In a Pyrosequencing reaction, nucleotide incorporation proceeds sequentially along each DNA template at a given nucleotide dispensation order (NDO) that is programmed into a pyrosequencer. The Pyrosequencer was run in parallel with the ABI 7900HT to show the accuracy of the new method and the efficiency (results for 96 samples in 15-25 minutes).

These systems will run simultaneously.

A standard PCR using primers that will amplify the DNA region containing the SNP of interest is performed on the GeneAmp 9700 thermocycler prior to the SNP genotyping assay, which is prepared via the software package which comes with the Pyrosequencer and the ABI 7900HT. Then, one set of the amplified DNA product is put on the ABI 7900 HT and the other set is put on the Pyrosequncer using primers that will amplify the DNA region containing the SNP of interest. Included in the reaction are two allele-specific fluorogenic probes, each consisting of a different fluorescent reporter dye and a fluorescent quencher. In the intact probe, the proximity of the quencher to the fluorphore causes fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET), reducing the fluorescence from the reporter dye. During PCR, the 5' nuclease activity of Taq digests the allele-specific probe bound to the region of the SNP, releasing the fluorescent dye from the quencher and allowing generation of a fluorescence signal. Depending on which dye signal is generated, the SNP alleles are determined. If only one dye signal is detected, the SNP is homozygous for the allele corresponding to the allele-specific probe, and if both dyes are detected, then the SNP is heterozygous.Diagram of results: Figure A Sample of the results obtained of a 2.0% Agarose gel using Lambda DNA Marker and BbvI digestion enzyme.

extracted DNA. (2) Maintain separate, dedicated equipment (e.g., pipettes, microcentrifuges) and supplies (e.g., microcentrifuge tubes, pipette tips) for assay setup and handling of extracted DNA. (3) Wear a clean disposable lab coat and gloves (not previously worn when handling extracted DNA or PCR products) when setting up assays. (4) Change gloves between samples and whenever you suspect they are contaminated. NOTE: PCR technology is extremely sensitive to cross contamination between specimens as well as contamination from outside sources. Gloves should be changed between steps where different specimens are handled or steps involving other potential sources of contamination. (5) Keep reagent tubes and reactions capped as much as possible. (6) Before setting up assays and after handling extracted DNA or PCR products, clean equipment and lab benches with freshly prepared 10% bleach. (7) Do NOT bring extracted DNA or PCR products into the assay setup area. (8) Use aerosol barrier (filter) pipette tips.

However, why is Section 4 -Data Analysis only one line? Would be much better if the full data analysis were given.
Another thing is transversion, and transition are American terms, I presume. Some British biologists may be more familiar with the term translation and inversion, and perhaps that could be addressed.
