ChangBioscience Primo Pro 3.4: PCR Primer Design           User Instructions FAQ Order Home
Primo Pro 3.4 reduces PCR noise by lowering the probability of random primering. For example ACTACCTGCTGCTGCAC for the p53 gene looks OK because it meets criteria commonly used for primer design. This primer may have high background because the 3' 8 nucleotides appears in 4800 genes in human transcriptome. Primo Pro analyzed transcriptomes to mark sequences that are over-represented, thus allow users to select primers with few over-represented sequences at the 3'-end. As a result of reduced random priming, we expect improved amplification efficiency and cleaner products, especially for RT-PCR. Order Primo Pro New: batch mode. See also Primo Family.
Counter since 6/1/02. Warning! Uncheck "Avoid background priming" if PCR template is not human cDNA. Read user manuel for details.
