    The use of non-specific mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) primers can frequently result in the erroneous amplification of DNA from contaminating organisms or from mtDNA nuclear inserts. A reliable method for deriving species-specific mtDNA polymerase chain reaction (PCR) primers using genomic and mtDNA enriched preparations from the same individual is described.
