I want to figure out the Tm for my primers.

Contents

Tools

Manipulate a DNA Sequence
mFold via Integrated DNA Technologies This is pretty easy to use.
mFold via RPI
DINAMelt This is what I am using for analysis here.

Approach

I have 4 oligos to compute the melting Temp (Tm) of. Into mFold I am inputting these parameters:

  • DNA sequence - there are two boxes. The left input is my oligo and the right input is the inverse compliment.
  • 50mM Na+
  • 2.5mM MG++
  • 10uM oligo concentration
  • Temp 37C
