Help section page of legumeSSRdb, here you will find a step by step guide to search microsatellites (SSR) in 13 legume species and design markers for crop improvement. Users can also check cross species transferability of designed markers. If you have any questions that are not covered in this page please refer to FAQ page or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For this tutorial we will use the Demo , so if you want to replicate the results obtained in this tutorial just follow the steps.
Select a species from the species dropdown menu or click any species on home page. This will open a search page for the selected species.
You can also search based on motif frequency, genomic region using advanced search options
Result page will display the SSR and their information based on the search query. Select design primers to design markers.
On this page you can design custom primers for the markers
The designed markers are displayed in the genome. Select a marker from left side table to view the markers.
Run ePCR option can be used for a marker to check cross species transferabilty
Amplification of selected markers can be viewed in other species either selecting genome from the dropdown menu or providing a FASTA file.
SSR can be visualize on reference genome with annotation using Jbrowse.
User can also run standalone blast against the legume species.
User can also predict SSR in a given sequence using our prediction tool.
legumeSSRdb have been tested in the following setups.
