DOGSET: pre-designed primer sets for fine-scale mapping and DNA sequence interrogation in the dog

Anim Genet. 2009 Aug;40(4):569-71. doi: 10.1111/j.1365-2052.2009.01875.x. Epub 2009 Mar 20.


DOGSET is an online resource that provides access to primer sequences that have been computationally mined from the reference genome using heuristic algorithms. The electronic repository includes PCR primers corresponding to 32,135 markers for genetic mapping and 334,657 sequence-tagged gene elements for targeted re-sequencing and mutation discovery. A customized report that tailors primer design to wet bench protocols can be exported for a region of interest by specifying genome coordinates in a graphical user interface.
