PCR primer design.


PCR primer design.

Ed. by Anton Yuryev.

Humana Press Inc.


431 pages



Methods in molecular biology; 402


Contributors in bioinformatics, molecular genetics, and computer science describe basic and specialized approaches for polymerase chain reaction (PCR) primer design. The methods can be used for both genome-scale experiments and for small-scale individual PCR amplifications. Material is in sections on basic principles and software, genome-scale PCR primer design, multiplex PCR primer design, allele-specific PCR, long PCR primer design, and DNA methylation mapping. The book will be useful as a reference for organizations performing whole genome studies, companies designing instruments that utilize PCR, and individual scientists--geneticists, molecular biologists, and molecular geneticists--who routinely use PCRA in their research. Yuryev is a genomics researcher in the private sector.
