How do I input the include/exclude regions on the PrimerQuest "Advanced" menu?
Only one included region may be defined per design in the PrimerQuest design tool. The included region is entered as a range; for example, 1200-1500. Multiple excluded regions are allowed per design in PrimerQuest. The "Excluded Region List" is a comma separated list of ranges. For example, 1200-1500, 1600-1700, 1850-1950. Find both of these parameter fields on the main page of the PrimerQuest design tool http://www.idtdna.com/Primerquest/Home/Index under the "Custom Target Region" section.
