Custom Baitset Design Calculator
This calculator will help you estimate the number of individual bait sequences required for your custom design. Please see our Custom Kits page for more information on this product, including pricing. The number of baits required will depend on the length of targeted sequence(s) as well as the parameters such as probe length & tiling density. See Project Planning to help guide you in choosing some of these parameters.
Keep in mind that this calculator is just providing a rough estimate purely for general planning purposes only. The exact number of probes required for your custom baitset will depend on design parameters such as the length of the specific sequences you want to include, our bait design algorithms, whether any non-unique baits need to be dropped from the design, and whether you wish to eliminate redundant/similar baits.
