"Finding the Right Primers: Using NCBI for RT-PCR Primer

Presenter: Adam
Clore, PhD

Scientific Applications Specialist, IDT

The speaker gave an overview of the NCBI websites that are
helpful for primer design as well as IDT’s primer design software. Primer design is an integral part of
sequencing, genotyping and expression analysis.
Poor primer design can lead to erroneous results no matter if you are
studying bacteria or humans. IDT also
manufactures “g block” double stranded DNA which is a useful control for assay where
the minor allele is rare.
