Southern blot analysis at UCSF
- A nucleic acid assay for testing for either a nucleotide repeat expansion (e.g., the trinucleotide repeat expansion associated with Huntington disease) or one or more specific mutations (e.g., Glu6Val for sickle cell anemia, a panel of mutations for cystic fibrosis). Deletion/duplication analysis and family-specific mutation analysis are excluded from this definition.
