Abstract
We report the latest details on improvements made or planned for the VPCR simulation software currently accessible on the Internet. We describe the inner workings of the dynamic amplification simulation model, concentrating mostly on the time- and sensitivity-critical step of sequence matching. Replacement of BLAST by the more sensitive and faster PRIMEX similarity search program resulted in a marked improvement of PCR product predictions. Further speed improvements were acheived using hardware acceleration of approximate sequence matching.
