Dear all,

I have a .fa file for my organism and several .bam files for my isolates. I have designed some PCR primers for the isolates. Are there any programs that would allow me to run In silico PCR with the bam files?

Thank you.

Hi zaroteary, Maybe you can convert your bam files to fasta - check BAM/SAM to FASTA conversion and then use in-silico PCR from UCSC ( download

After I converted my BAM file to FASTA, the sequences are all in fragments of ~100 bp with overlaps. Example:


Do I need to reconstruct the genome before going into in-silico PCR? If so, how do I do it? Sorry, if this is a stupid question, I'm new to all these...
