    Dear Vilgalys team,

    It looks like many of the links listed as “Previous Vilgalys lab web sites” cannot be accessed anymore.

    I would like to cite the link “rDNA primer sequences for fungal sequencing” into one of my papers for which I used primers SR2, SR7, SR7R and SR10R for sequencing.

    Would you kindly provide me the correct link that I could cite into my paper or a reference of yours that provides the sequences of the four mentioned primers?

    Many thanks,
    Alina
