Welcome to MethPrimer!

MethPrimer is a program for designing bisulfite-conversion-based Methylation PCR Primers. Currently, it can design primers for two types of bisulfite PCR: 1) Methylation-Specific PCR (MSP) and 2) Bisulfite-Sequencing PCR (BSP) or Bisulfite-Restriction PCR. MethPrimer can also predict CpG islands in DNA sequences

Input Sequence: A DNA sequences in any format. No editing is required before input.>

Output: MethPrimer returns results in both text and graphic view including results of primer picking and CpG island prediction.
