What is the optimal length of a primer?
IDT recommends you aim for primers between 18–30 bases; however, the most important considerations for primer design should be their Tm value and sequence specificity. Primers should also be free of strong secondary structures and self-complementarity.
The free IDT OligoAnalyzer™ Tool can be used to evaluate these features.
