PCR primer design straight from the source

July 1, 2012 at 7:47 am Leave a comment

Most of us that have been doing PCR for a while have already figured out our favorite software/program for designing an ideal set of primers. If you’re like me, you’ve probably figured it out by trial and error and may or may not be using the program exactly as intended.

Here’s a video that was recently uploaded by none other than NCBI itself giving a quick demonstration of how to initiate Primer-BLAST from within the graphics, or sequence viewer, display in nucleotide records at NCBI.

The video, true to its description, is a brief, introductory demo but the presenter leads me to believe that there will be other, more detailed tutorials in the future. We will be sure to keep our eye on the NCBI YouTube channel and will update you as more videos become available.
