Now I am looking for some software to test primers with. I always used to eye-ball a sequence, and based on that pick some good looking sequences, put it into the Mac program: Amplify.

This program then visualizes how specific and efficient the priming is on the target sequence by virtual pcr products.

BUT changed workplace, no Amplify.. I am trying to find it on the net though.

Does anyone now other programs which can handle the task? PC or Mac operatable?

I know of primer3 from MIT, but I don't like it..

too bad that I don't have a Mac :S

The DNA stryder is really good software too, for sequence manipulations, BUT only for Macs..
