Import Primers

How can I import primers from one file into another?

Open the Destination File

Open the file that will receive the imported primers.

SnapGene will import only primers that can hybridize with the destination file sequence. If the destination file already has primers, SnapGene will not duplicate existing primers by default, but will offer the option of importing duplicate primers.

Primers can be imported from:

  • a source *.dna file
  • a list in *.txt or *.rtf format
  • a Vector NTI® database or oligo archive
  • a Clone Manager primer archive

Specify a *.dna File

To specify the source file, click Primers → Import Primers from Another File... .

In the Import Primers from Another File dialog, choose a *.dna source file, then click OK.

Specify a Source List

To specify the source list, click Primers → Import Primers from a List... .

In the Import Primers from a List dialog, choose a *.txt or *.rtf source file, or choose Import primers copied to the clipboard, then click OK.

Specify a Vector NTIĀ® File

To specify the source Vector NTI® file, click Primers → Import Primers from Vector NTI®... .

In the Import Primers from Vector NTI® dialog, choose a database or oligo archive, then click OK.

Specify a Clone Manager File

To specify the source Clone Manager file, click Primers → Import Primers from Clone Manager... .

In the Import Primers from Clone Manager dialog, choose a *.pd4 or *.px5 file, then click OK.

View the Available Primers List

A second dialog will list the primers that are to be imported. If desired, click the check box at the lower left to show the descriptions.

Specify Which Primers Will Be Added

The Add column indicates which primers will be imported. To change the default choices, click the relevant check boxes, then click Add [N] Primer(s).

View the Imported Primers

The imported primers will be added to the destination file.
