Is there any tool/script that would take a vcf or bedpe/bed file generated using a structural variant caller eg, manta from illumina and design primers to validate them?

Thanks.

extract the start-end from your variants, extends this interval, get the fasta sequence with samtools faidx , convert this fasta sequence to primer3 using awk, and pipe into primer3.

Local primer candidates from primer3 we usually check in addition genome-wide for uniqueness using BLAST or BLAT because SVs are often embedded in repeats.

i am aware of primer3, what I am looking for is a tool which would take list of positions and generate primers against them.
