The PR2 primer database


DOI

An interactive database of eukaryotic rRNA primers and primer sets for metabarcoding studies compiled from the literature.

Database structure

Panels

  • About: Basic information
  • Primers: table with download
  • Primer sets: table with download
  • Amplification - overview: Give for all primer sets tested % of sequences amplified and amplicon size
  • Amplification - detail: For one primer set tested, detail for different taxonomic levels (kingdom, supergroup, division, class)
  • Test your primer/probe: Test a single primer or probe against PR2 version 4.12.0 and Silva seed 132
  • Test your primer set: Test your primer set against PR2 version 4.12.0 and Silva seed 132

Errors

Please report errors or primer sets not listed here in the Issues page of the PR2 primer database.
