Researchers use reverse transcription PCR to measure amounts of mRNA in a cell and gauge gene activity. Find the right primers for a particular mouse or human gene at this new database from the National Cancer Institute. The site profiles more than 3000 primers and probes, all gleaned from published papers. Search the data by gene, by species, or by assay to find the primer's location, sequence, original reference, and other information.
