To our users Please note that the HCV database site is no longer funded. We try to keep the database updated and the tools running, but unfortunately, we cannot guarantee we can provide help for using this site. Data won't be manually curated either.

HCV primers

We have created a mailing list to spread information and answer questions about primers for HCV sequencing. If this page doesn't answer your question you can ask the members of this list. Unsubscribe information will be included in every message sent from the list.
