This package is for version 3.16 of Bioconductor; for the stable, up-to-date release version, see TAPseq.

Targeted scRNA-seq primer design for TAP-seq

Bioconductor version: 3.16

Design primers for targeted single-cell RNA-seq used by TAP-seq. Create sequence templates for target gene panels and design gene-specific primers using Primer3. Potential off-targets can be estimated with BLAST. Requires working installations of Primer3 and BLASTn.
