The following page contains links to a number of bioinformatic tools, which i find useful. For our own tools check

the following link. bioinformatics tools :


mFold :: Oligo Analyzer
M.Zucker's oligo nucleotide analyzer, calculate primer melting temperatures, check for dimers and hairpins
to optimize the primer design
