As this has become a FAQ I have put together the following information
on Primer generating programs.
There are, to my knowledge 4 programs which deal with pcr primer
Pgen - for Dos only
Primer - Stanford - Sun Sparcstations only
Primer - Whitehead -Unix, Vms (and DOS and Mac if you can compile it)
Amplify - Mac only
OSP - Unix, X-windows, Vms, DOS, Mac - by snail-mail only.
Below is all the info I have on said programs.
Hope this helps,
Kudos go to the authors and the ftp site maintainers.
I'd like to add my thanks as well. FAQ lists are great aids for some of us
novices in the field. My Mac disk is rapidly filling up with these tidbits.
