Initial development of Primer3 was funded by Howard Hughes Medical Institute and by the National Institutes of Health, National Human Genome Research Institute under grants R01-HG00257 (to David C. Page) and P50-HG00098 (to Eric S. Lander). Ongoing development is partly funded by institutional grant IUT34-11 from the Estonian Ministry of Education and Research and by Centre of Excellence in Genomics and Translational Medicine at University of Tartu (funding from EU ERDF).
Primer3 was a complete re-implementation of an earlier program: Primer 0.5 (Steve Lincoln, Mark Daly, and Eric S. Lander).
