PMCID: 5819644
PMID: 29463303
DOI: 10.1186/s13104-018-3249-1

[…] penta- and hexanucleotides repeats were screened with the software msatcommander [, ] and sequences less than 100 bp and/or with a small number of repeats were excluded. primers were designed with primerselect software (part of the lasergene package []). every microsatellite sequence chosen was run through the online version of the basic local alignment search tool for nucleotide (blastn) [] […]

DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-25514-5

[…] homology with other b. subtilis group strains were designated pcr targets. the specific primers used for b. velezensis and b. subtilis subsp. subtilis were generated using the dnastar lasergene primerselect module (version 7.0) (table ). primer synthesis was performed by the bioneer corporation (daejeon, korea). each primer set amplifies a specific dna fragment from only the targeted […]

PMID: 26937960
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0150485

[…] all pei candidate genes were amplified by pcr from genomic dna of cultivar ‘atlas’ (rrs2+, resistant) using specific forward and reverse primers (). primer development was done with the program primerselect™ which is part of the software suit dnastar® lasergene version 10 (dnastar, inc., madison, wisconsin, usa)., haplotype analysis and alignment of nucleotide sequences was performed […]

PMID: 22194958
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0028954

[…] bases were selected for the r. reniformis primer generation. these regions are divergent areas of dna sequence as described. the sequences were trimmed to the divergent areas and imported into primerselect® of the lasergene® software package. primer pairs were generated using primerselect®., the rr-β-tub primers () were evaluated in reactions having three different levels of dna sample […]
