IDT currently accepts Gene ID, Gene Name, and FASTA as target definition inputs for standard designs. Design parameters include probe size, tiling depth, maximum flank size, and repeat masking. By default, we allow probes to overlap masked target regions by up to 20 bases. Other inputs and parameters are accepted, but may require additional fees.
The fee structure for custom designs is as follows:
|Time ||Cost |
|First 2 Hours ||Free |
|Additional ||$50/Hour |
Up to $250 worth of design fees can be credited towards your corresponding xGen Lockdown Probe order.
If your targets are documented by chromosome location, please follow the instructions below to obtain acceptable FASTA sequences for design requests from the UCSC genome browser.
