Simultaneous chemical primer extension in both 3'- and 5'-direction is reported by C. Richert et al. in their Communication on page 8299 ff. The use of magnetic beads as a solid support and azidomethyloxycarbonyl moieties as protecting groups provided control over the extension steps directed by a DNA sequence. The method combines features of replication and of automated DNA synthesis.
