Hi folks,

We've been asked to recommend software for identifying good primers for 
siRNA knockdown experiments, and preferably also for predicting the 
effectiveness of primers chosen by other means. Even a quick search reveals 
many tools that supposedly do the former, but I need to suggest no more 
than two or three tools. Do you know of anybody who has compared some of 
these tools and has either published the results or would be willing to 
share them? Thanks,
