SNPbox: web-based high-throughput primer design with an eye for repetitive sequences.

Author information

Department of Molecular Genetics, Flanders Interuniversity Institute for Biotechnology (VIB), University of Antwerp, Belgium.


In this omics era, researchers in biosciences need more than ever user-friendly, fast, and straightforward computational tools for high-throughput research. In this chapter, we present SNPbox and explain the general primer design strategy. We also show how the four modules, Exon, Single-Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP), Saturation, and Exon + Saturation, exactly apply the primer design strategy, give clear guidance for users of the Web interface at, and explain how pre-designed primers for Ensembl genes can be visualized and retrieved.
