A Step-by-Step Guide to Designing qPCR Primers

Primer design is a critical step when setting up your qPCR or reverse transcription-qPCR assay (RT-qPCR). qPCR primers that anneal poorly or to more than one sequence during amplification can significantly impact the quality and reliability of your results. Also, if you are performing a one-step RT-qPCR, the reverse transcriptase will use the reverse primer…
