Summary

Make sequencing primers for Sanger validation experiments

Description

This command makes primers for sequencing target regions of the genome. It will try to avoid having known SNPs (from dbSNP) or repeats in the primers. If these canot be avoided, it will annotate the primers with this info. Variants close together can be grouped into regions first using the command:

cg makeregions selvariantlist.tsv 200 > regionfile.tsv

Arguments

regionfile
sft that has at least the columns chromosome, begin, end; must be sorted by chromosome, then begin
maxsize
the maximum amplicon size
prefsize
the prefered amplicon size
dbdir
directory containing reference genomes, region and variation data
minfreq
only snps with a frequency > minfreq will be avoided. All will be used if minfreq is not given or smaller than 0
threads
how many threads to use (use 1)
