Dear Netizens,
I need help from an expert of computer programs dealing with the dna and 
protein sequence analysis. I want to know about the computer program to 
design primers for RAP-PCR. The journal article which I am referring to 
does not provide me enough information about this. It says:

"We describe an improved method which combines features of both RAP PCR 
and differential display. This method starts with cDNA synthesis primed 
by a single oligo(dT) primer, followed by PCR amplification with 
combination of long arbitrary primers(25mer) and lock docking oligo (dT) 
primers (29mer). 
The sequences of first 9 nucleotides (from the 3'end) of the arbitrary 
primers corresponds to the most common sequence motifs found in 
mammalian mRNAs. These sequences were obtained by computer analysis of 
the coding region of over 200 mammalian mRNAs." 

I also want to find out the most common sequence motifs from the plant 
mRNAs to design the same kind of primers for RAP PCR. Please suggest how 
to do that and please give information about the availability of the 
program to perform the task. Your help will go a long way in furthering 
my research.My email address is ritu at hotmail.com 
Thanx a lot.
Bye for now
