We have developed a simple method for fast analysis of single nucleotide polymorphisms and identification of target clones from cloned complex PCR products. The method utilizes Kamchatka crab duplex-specific nuclease and universal fluorescent probe and is alternative to laborious screening procedures using radioactive probes, restriction analysis followed by gel electrophoresis or expensive sequencing. The method efficacy was demonstrated in several model experiments.
