primers - Simple version of primer3 to pick PCR primers
primers -sequence seqall
primers is a command line program from EMBOSS (“the European
Molecular Biology Open Software Suite”). It is part of the
"Nucleic:Primers" command group(s).
The sequence from which to choose primers. The sequence
must be presented 5' -> 3'
If one or more Targets is specified then a legal primer
pair must flank at least one of them. A Target might be a simple sequence
repeat site (for example a CA repeat) or a single-base-pair polymorphism. The
value should be a space-separated list of <start>,<end> pairs
where <start> is the index of the first base of a Target, and
<end> is the last E.g. 50,51 requires primers to surround the 2 bases at
positions 50 and 51.
Minimum acceptable length of a primer. Must be greater
than 0 and less than or equal to MAX-SIZE. Default value: 18
Maximum acceptable length (in bases) of a primer.
Currently this parameter cannot be larger than 35. This limit is governed by
the maximum oligo size for which Primer3's melting-temperature is valid.
Default value: 27
Maximum acceptable (unsigned) difference between the
melting temperatures of the forward and reverse primers. Default value:
If this flag is non-0, produce LEFT-EXPLAIN and
RIGHT-EXPLAIN, output, which are intended to provide information on the number
of primer pairs that Primer3 examined, and statistics on the number discarded
for various reasons. Default value: N
The maximum number of primer pairs to return. Primer
pairs returned are sorted by their 'quality', in other words by the value of
the objective function (where a lower number indicates a better primer pair).
Caution: setting this parameter to a large value will increase running time.
Default value: 5
primers is fully documented via the tfm(1) system.
