Detection of ESKAPE Bacterial Pathogens at the Point of Care Using Isothermal DNA Based Assays in a Portable Degas Actuated Microfluidic Diagnostic Assay Platform

Appl Environ Microbiol
PMCID: 5288812
PMID: 27986722
DOI: 10.1128/AEM.02449-16

[…] r-probe sets for each of the 5 organisms and performed a BLAST search of all primer-probe set sequences against sequence information available for all species within these genera on GenBank using the PriMux software (). This step enabled us to determine that the assays we were developing amplified only targeted genetic material and did not produce a false-positive result when challenged with nonta […]


Multiplex Degenerate Primer Design for Targeted Whole Genome Amplification of Many Viral Genomes

Adv Bioinformatics
PMCID: 4137498
PMID: 25157264
DOI: 10.1155/2014/101894

[…] s concentrations mean that standard PCR primer design from a reference may fail due to mutations in the sample virus that prevent primer binding. To address this problem, we added a capability to the PriMux software distribution ( called run_tiled_primers that applies the PriMux software [] to automate PCR primer design to achieve a near-minimal set of conse […]


Screening of Viral Pathogens from Pediatric Ileal Tissue Samples after Vaccination

PMCID: 3980782
PMID: 24778651
DOI: 10.1155/2014/720585
call_split See protocol

[…] Taqman signatures were designed using the run Primux triplet script that is part of the PriMux software [] for the viruses detected in ileum samples 5, 7, 9, 11, and 14. Target sets were comprised of the available complete sequences for the follo […]
