How do I enter in a SNP, MNP or InDel sequence into the RealTimeDesign™ software?

Users must select the 'SNP Genotyping' application in order to have the RealTimeDesign™ (RTD™) software design assays to detect Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs), Multi-Nucleotide Polymorphisms (MNPs) or Insertions/Deletions (InDels). Users need to annotate the polymorphism in one of the following formats:

Single Nucleotide Polymorphism: [C/T] where C and T represent the single base pair mismatch. Alternatively, users can use the IUPAC code for the SNP represented in the following list:

Nucleic acid codes:
R = Purine (A or G)
Y = Pyrimidine (C, or T)
M = C or A
K = T or G
W = T or A
S = C or G
B = C, T, or G (not A)
D = A, T, or G (not C)
H = A, T, or C (not G)
V = A, C, or G (not T)
N = Any base (A, C, G, or T)
Multi-Nucleotide Polymorphisms:
[CA/GT] where CA and GT represent the multi-nucleotide mismatch

[CA/-] where CA represents the insertion.
