The element searches primers against the input sequence.

Parameters in GUI

ParameterDescriptionDefault value
Annotate AsName of the result primers
DirectionSee the description here.Any
Excluded regionsThe regions should be avoided for primer selection.No default value.
Max repeat misprimingThe maximum allowed weighted similarity with any sequence in Mispriming Library.12
Max template misprimingThe maximum allowed similarity to ectopic sites in the sequence from which you are designing the primers.12
Number to returnThe maximum number of primer pairs to return.5
Pair max repeat misprimingThe maximum allowed sum of similarities of a primer pair (one similarity for each primer) with any single sequence in Mispriming Library.24
Pair max template misprimingThe maximum allowed summed similarity of both primers to ectopic sites in the sequence from which you are designing the primers.24
Product size rangesList of product size ranges. Primer first tries to pick primers in the first range. If that is not possible, it goes to the next range and tries again. It continues in this way until it has either picked all necessary primers or until there are no more ranges.









Max 3’ stabilityThe maximum stability for the last five 3’ bases of a left or right primer. Bigger numbers mean more stable 3’ ends.9
TargetsIf one or more Targets is specified then a legal primer pair must flank at least one of them.No default value.
