Benchling's advanced primer features can help you streamline your research. If you already have primers on Benchling, whether in the bioregistry or a project, you can find and attach them on existing sequences using the Attach Existing feature. This will save you and your lab from reordering primers you may already have in your inventory.

Set up your search parameters

Open the Primers panel by clicking on the two arrows at the right and click Attach Existing.

From the Find binding sites for drop down menu, select all primers in specified projects or the Bioregistry. If you want to limit your search to a section of your sequence, select the region and click Use Selection.

You can adjust various parameters.


Click Find Binding Sites when complete, and select the saved primers and click Attach Selected Primers.
