"Virus genomes from the same family may exhibit a wide range in their DNA GC content, whereas viral hypermutants differ substantially in GC content from their parental genomes," researchers in France report.
"As AT-rich DNA melts at lower temperatures than GC-rich DNA, use of a lower denaturation temperature during PCR should allow differential amplification of AT-rich genomes; or variants within a quasispecies.
"The latter situation has been explored explicitly in a two-step process by using a series of well-defined viral sequences differing in their AT...
