FAS-DPD | A tool to design consensus degenerated oligonucleotides


A package to design degenerate primers for PCR. FAS-DPD is very strict in the search of conserved regions and minimizes the amount of degeneracy incorporated at this end. The software is designed to use multiple alignments of proteins or nucleic acids and constructs a consensus degenerate sequence from that, which is then used to design the putative primers. This tool allows a more efficient search for enzymes and other proteins with commercial or biotechnological importance, making for a faster and cheaper research process.
