Selection of oligonucleotides for whole-genome microarrays with semi-automatic update

Bioinformatics. 2009 Jan 1;25(1):128-9. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btn573. Epub 2008 Nov 10.


Oligonucleotide microarray probes are designed to match specific transcripts present in databases that are regularly updated. As a consequence probes should be checked every new database release. We thus developed an informatics tool allowing the semi-automatic update of probe collections of long oligonucleotides and applied it to the mouse RefSeq database.
