Primer Design

Part of the Methods In Molecular Medicine™ book series (MIMB, volume 70)


Version 1.5 of GeneJockeyII includes two routines for primer design. One of these generates primer pairs for the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), whereas the other generates primers for site-directed mutagenesis (SDM). Individual primers generated for PCR are also highly suitable for sequencing purposes (see Note 1).
