This is a public database holding PCR primers for popular DNA methylation analysis methods
(Methylation-specific PCR, Bisulfite-PCR-SSCP, Methylation-sensitive single-nucleotide primer extension, Combined bisulfite restriction analysis, Bisulfite sequencing) to prevent time-consuming primer design and experimental optimisation.
We strongly encourage researchers to submit their validated primer sequences.
One can query the database using the official gene name, Entrez Gene or
methPrimerDB identifier, or oligonucleotide sequence.
Different options make it possible to restrict a query to one organism (Human, Mouse, Rat) or method.
Data submission is allowed after free registration where you obtain a login name and password.
Currently, 259 primer sets are available, submitted by 174 people.
