A primer is short oligo made from nucleic acids. It is the starting point for DNA polymerases to start DNA synthesis. DNA polymerases can only synthesize enlarge existing nucleic but not generate new ones 'de novo'. Primers can be made of DNA (for PCR) or RNA (naturally occuring).
New to molecular and have learned to design primers from google/youtube so any info would help Would someone be willing to share their protocol for degenerate primer design? Breakdown: Trying to ...
