MultiPLX 2.1 is a tool for analyzing PCR primer compatibility and automatically finding optimal multiplexing (grouping) solution. It uses state-of-the-art nearest neighbour DNA binding thermodynamics to estimate possible unwanted pairings between PCR samples. This thermodynamic data is then used to distribute primers into groups that satisfy user defined set of constraints.
Stand-alone MultiPLX binaries, example file and README are available here.
Here is a correct primers file.
