Instructions on primer design: Primers designed from 3'UTR sequence has higher success rate for producing a map position.  Coding regions will work for PCR but may not be able to produce an accurate map location due to other family genes.  Try to avoid primers that span introns and highly conserved regions.  See the RH Mapping Protocols if you have scoring questions.  Our mapping effort primarily focuses on the Goodfellow panel.  If the Goodfellow panel fails to map your gene, we will try the Ekker panel for it.  If the Ekker panel is especially required for mapping your gene, please check the proper box.
