Efficiency of PAMPS (f) compared to PT-MIPS. f is defined as (mmips-mpamps)/mmips where mmips is the number of primers produced by PT-MIPS and mpamps represents the number of primers produced by PAMPS. Multiple sets of different numbers of random sequences with varying lengths are used to compare PT-MIPS and PAMPS. Each set of sequence is once used as input of PT-MIPS and once as input of PAMPS. Minimum primer length was set as 15 and maximum degeneracy as 104.
