Computer-aided design of primers is a central task in human molecular genetics. High-throughput genotyping experiments require in-silico tools able to process batch queries.

A recent paper in BMC Bioinformatics describes a new computational tool for the design of primers for different applications, such as tetra-ARMS or allele-specific PCR. BatchPrimer3 is based in the Primer3 program and allows for the use of a large number of targets as input (in Fasta format). The results can be exported as excel files. This new in silico tool can be very useful for researchers that are planning to carry out analyses of several genomic regions or SNPs.
