The PCR primers used for library amplification/enrichment are not methylated; methyalted primers could be used but from what we understand they're insanely expensive.
Hi Olaf Blue,
Thank you for helping me and all the infor. I think I'll try the epicentre kit. What software or tool do you use for sequence data analysis? Is the BS reads in one of the 4 forms (+fw, +rc, -fw, -rc) or just 2 forms ? Thanks again!
