Hello Colleagues,

Does anyone out there designing degenerate oligonucleotide primers know
a handy source (Website, manual etc) on where to find the IUPAC symbols
for the degenerate bases -e.g Y = T/C, R = A/G etc.  I am looking for
the symbols for
 A/T and G/T and A/C specifically and asap.  Thanks!
