Description

The PrimerPairsSet class is a container for storing primer pairs. This means exactly two DNAStringSet objects of the same length specifying primer-pairs. Primer sequences can be provided as character strings and will be converted to DNAStringSet by the constructor function of the same name. primerF and primerR have to be of the same length to specify primer pairs. Warnings are given if primer sequences are of unusual length (<16 or >26 bases).

Value

PrimerPairsSet-class

Slots

primerF

DNAStringSet. Can be named or unnamed.

primerR

DNAStringSet of the same length. Can be named or unnamed.

names

Character string. Either constructed as a concatenation of names of forward and reverse primers or of their sequences (if primer sequences are unnamed).

.mapF

(automatically generated) maps potentially duplicate entries in FW primers to unique entries.

.mapR

(auto-generated) maps potentially duplicate entries in FW primers to unique entries.

.uniqueF

(auto-generated) unique forward primers as character strings.

.uniqueR

(auto-generated) unique reverse primers as character strings.
