PrimeArray: Genome-Scale Primer Design for DNA-microarray Construction

Bioinformatics. 2001 Jan;17(1):98-9. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/17.1.98.


PrimeArray is a Windows program that computes oligonuceotide primer pairs for genome-scale gene amplification by the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR). The program supports the automated extraction of coding sequences (CDS) from various input-file formats and allows highly automated primer pair-optimization.
