Frequently Asked Questions

What is PrimerGenesis?
PrimerGenesis is a software tool that allows for rapid design of primers for site-directed mutagenesis.

Do I have to download software onto my computer to use PrimerGenesis?
No. PrimerGenesis can be readily accessed from our website at www.primergenesis.com without downloading or signing up requirements.

Do I have to pay to use PrimerGenesis?
No. PrimerGenesis software tool is available to users free of charge.

Is there a limit on the number of primers I can design using PrimerGenesis? No. PrimerGenesis can be used to generate as many primers as desired. PrimerGenesis is particularly useful in the design of large number of primers.

Which types of mutations can I generate with PrimerGenesis?
PrimerGenesis can be used to generate substitutions, insertions and deletions.

Can I use PrimerGenesis to generate sequential mutations within the same gene?
Not yet, but we are working on it.

What about if the two mutations are in close proximity to each other?
PrimerGenesis tool allows for the design of overlapping mutagenic primers. The site-directed PCR reactions must, however, be performed in the same order as the primers were designed.

Can I use PrimerGenesis to perform restriction free cloning?
Not yet, but we are working on it.

Where can I learn more about site-directed mutagenesis?
Additional information about site-directed mutagenesis can be obtained at www.genomics.agilent.com (Agilent Technologies/Genomics).
