Available Tools

Primer Blaster

This tool was designed to test the specificity of any primer pair on the musa genome by using BLAST. Make sure primers have the same id in both cases. As a result, a table displays all tested primers with primer name and positions, location on chromosome, amplicon size and number of hits on the musa genome. If the primer pair is really specific, this status is clearly marked as ‘ok’ in the table.

Primer Designer

Primer Designer allows users to design new target-specific primers in one step as well as to check the specificity of pre-existing primers with BLAST.

Gene search

Search for a gene by name, location, functional annotation keywords...

Locus Converter

This tool allows to convert locus tags names between version of the genome assemblies. It supports conversion between v1 and v2 of the DH-Pahang assembly. You can search either by legacy identifiers (GSMUA_Achr3G27160_001) or by RefSeq identifiers (gene708).
