Description

PrimerServer was proposed to design genome-wide specific PCR primers. It uses candidate primers produced by Primer3, uses BLAST and nucleotide thermodynamics to search for possible amplicons and filters out specific primers for each site. By using multiple threads, it runs very fast, ~0.4s per site in our case study for more than 10000 sites.
