ready PCR Primer Database for Gene Expression Detection and Quantification


General Information
PrimerBank is a public resource for PCR primers. These primers are designed for gene expression detection or quantification (real-time PCR). PrimerBank contains over 306,800 primers covering most known human and mouse genes. There are several ways to search for primers: GenBank Accession, NCBI protein accession, NCBI Gene ID, Gene Symbol, PrimerBank ID or Keyword (gene description) or you can blast your gene sequence against the primerbank Sequence DB.
