PCR Primer Design
PCR Primer Design

Criteria for designing oligonucleotide primers.

  1. Sequences are highly conserved among prokaryotes.
  2. Segments of amplified fragment show significant variation.
  3. Fragment size between 350 and 600 bp is optimal for PCR and sequencing from both ends.
      Primer A - 28 nts - coding strand (~310 - ~340) 5-CGGCCCAGACTCCTACGGGAGGCAGCA- 3

      Primer B - 26 nts - non-coding strand (~770 - ~740)
