What is the recommended amplicon size for CpG assays?

The amplicon length should be short (<200 bp). This is critical especially for DNA from FFPE tissue that is often degraded by the fixation so that short fragments are easier to amplify. Moreover, the DNA suffers from harsh bisulfite treatment and might receive further double strand breaks. Therefore, the amplicon size should be kept as short as possible.
