The tool allows predicting primers specificity and GM targets coverage. It can also help developing detection methods for selected species or non-authorized GMOs by retrieving and characterising related sequences from public databases and patents documentation.
The potential GMO or taxon amplicon sequences are assembled by in silico PCR simulations with primers of EU reference methods using the tool "re-PCR" (Rotmistrovsky et al, 2004).
The JRC GMO-Amplicons application is updated with the most recent releases of nt, nrnl1, emblrelpat and emblreltgn public databases. Read more on these databases.
