Hi Mac,
I've started using geneious for primer design, it uses primers3 but
with a nicer interface.  I know you can make primers with the 30 day
free trial and maybe after that with the limited version.   Genious is
a really nice tool in general for organizing and playing around with
sequences, although for high throughput stuff it is not the right
tool.

Cheers,
John

Thanks,
the square brackets fixed things as far as getting the coding sequence
inside the primers... now do you know if there is a way to tell it
specifically where to start and stop? or should I just remove the UTR
regions if I don't want to prime on them?
can you tell me if I need to be concerned with removing or chopping
the untranslated regions? What are their purposes? I am thinking of
ligating this cDNA into a vector that has a his-tag or a translocation
sequence (if I use it in yeast for secretion).
Again thanks a lot, great stuff to know (even though I could have got
it out of a prof in 5 minutes, its gonna stick with me now for sure)
