Description

Nowdays, it is easy to design one primer pair specific to the whole genome in a modal organism. Many programs such as NCBI primer-BLAST can conduct this well. However, what if you want to design multiple primer pairs that are specific to a custom genome? Besides, how to do this for both normal users (GUI needed) and bioinformatics users? (CLI needed, for large amount of sites). Here are several issues raised in BioStar:

We anticipate that PrimerServer can satisfy all of this.

  • Very easy to install. Only uses three tools: Primer3, Samtools and NCBI BLAST+. No other special modules or plugins needed.
  • Very nice GUI: Running progress bar, primer gragh, virtual gel electrophoresis, parameters and results storage
  • Very fast CLI: multiple threaded, ~0.4s per site for designing primers for >10,000 sites
  • High accuracy
