List of Available DNA Sequencing Primers

The following commonly used primers are provided free of charge by the IIHG Genomics Division for use in automated sequencing. If you would like us to provide one of these primers, please indicate this when you complete your on-line request form by selecting a primer with the “CORE” designation and we will then add the primer requested to the DNA sample.

Please verify that the primer sequence of the selected primer coincides with that listed for your specific vector. We have found at least one instance where primers with the same name have entirely different sequences.
