oligotm - Prints oligo's melting temperature on stdout SYNOPSIS
oligotm [OPTIONS] {oligo} where oligo is a DNA sequence of between 2 and 36 bases DESCRIPTION
oligotm prints the melting temperature of a given desoxyribooligonucleotide on the standard output. It is part of the oligotm library. OPTIONS
-mv monovalent_conc Concentration of monovalent cations in mM, by default 50 mM. -dv divalent_conc Concentration of divalent cations in mM, by default 0 mM. -n dNTP_conc Concentration of deoxynycleotide triphosphate in mM, by default 0 mM. -d dna_conc Concentration of DNA strands in nM, by default 50 nM. -tp [0|1] Specifies the table of thermodynamic parameters and the method of melting temperature calculation: o 0 Breslauer et al., 1986 and Rychlik et al., 1990 (used by primer3 up to and including release 1.1.0). This is the default, but not the recommended value. o 1 Use nearest neighbor parameter from SantaLucia 1998. This is the recommended value. -sc [0..2] Specifies salt correction formula for the melting temperature calculation: o 0 Schildkraut and Lifson 1965, used by primer3 up to and including release 1.1.0. This is the default, but not the recommended value. o 1 SantaLucia 1998. This is the recommended value. o 1 Owczarzy et al., 2004. -i prints references to publications which were used for thermodynamic calculations. REFERENCE

Bio::PrimerDesigner::primer3 - An class for accessing primer3 SYNOPSIS
use Bio::PrimerDesigner::primer3; METHODS
Methods are called using the simplifed alias for each primer3 result or the raw primer3 BoulderIO key. Use the raw_output method to view the raw output. binary_name Defines the binary's name on the system. check_params Make sure we have required primer3 arguments. design Build the primer3 config file, run primer3, then parse the results. Expects to be passed a hash of primer3 input options. Returns an object that can be used to call result methods. request Figures out where the primer3 binary resides and accesses it with a list of parameters for designing primers. check_results Verify the validity of the design results. list_aliases Prints a list of shorthand aliases for the primer3 BoulderIO input format. The full input/ouput options and the aliases can be used interchangeably. list_params Returns a list of primer3 configuration options. primer3 will use reasonable default options for most parameters. example Runs a sample remote primer design job. Returns an Bio::PrimerDesigner::Result object. _example_dna Returns an example DNA sequence. AUTHOR
