IMGT®, the international ImMunoGeneTics information system®

logo IMGT


IMGT/PRIMER-DB is part of IMGT, the international ImMunoGeneTics information system®[1].

IMGT/PRIMER-DB, created by LIGM (Université Montpellier II, CNRS) in collaboration with EUROGENTEC S.A.(Seraing, Belgium), is the IMGT oligonucleotide database on the Web since February 2002.
IMGT/PRIMER-DB provides standardized information on oligonucleotides (or Primers) and combinations of primers (Sets, Couples) for immunoglobulins (IG) and T cell receptors (TR).

Primers, Sets and Couples are described in IMGT Primer cards, IMGT Set cards and IMGT Couple cards, respectively. These primers are useful for combinatorial library constructions, scFv, phage display or microarray technologies.

The IMGT Primer cards are linked to IMGT/LIGM-DB flat files, IMGT Colliers de Perles and IMGT Alignments of alleles (IMGT Repertoire) of the IMGT/LIGM-DB reference sequence used for the primer description.
