A database to help viruses detection. MRPrimerV database contains 152,380,247 PCR primer pairs for detection of 1,818 viruses, covering 7,144 coding sequences (CDSs), representing 100% of the RNA viruses in the most up-to-date NCBI RefSeq database. Due to rigorous similarity testing against all human and viral sequences, every primer in MRPrimerV is highly target-specific. Moreover, MRPrimerV provides the list of genome neighbors that can be detected using each primer pair, covering 22,192 variants of 532 RefSeq RNA viruses. The public availability of MRPrimerV will facilitate viral metagenomics studies aimed at evaluating the variability of viruses, as well as other scientific tasks.
