A co-worker is designing primers for PCR from protein sequence.
One primer is good (in terms of degeneracy and Tm), but the other
is a little 'iffy'.
The PCR will be from genomic template, and the 'good' region is
not big enough to attempt IPCR. One solution is to use a
'vectorette' method or to PCR from a genomic library using
one of the plasmid primers as a second primer.
Another solution would be to 'improve' the second primer
calculated from the protein sequence.
So: i) Has anyone got, or knows of a source for, an elderberry
ii) Does anyone know if codon usage tables are available/
have been used in primer design for plant families.
iii) Is there an obvious alternative strategy that we may
Thanks in advance for any help.
