What software do you use to design LAMP reaction primers for alignment? So far I have been using Primer Explorer v5 but I am looking for some alternatives.

Alignment includes some species from the same virus family. So I am looking for a set of primers that will capture species from the given alignment.

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to the site. What is the depth of study and degeneracy, e.g. within a species, genera, or family ... or beyond? This is kinda important to identify which algorithm. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, woooaa thats difficult. I might have misunderstood this but if its an RNA virus diagnosis at the familial level that is not trivial. The mutation rate of RNA viruses is very high - at familial level, it's impossibly high excepting for the use of nested-PCR strategies. $\endgroup$
