Highly dynamic and efficient microarray probe design

What is GoArrays ?

GoArrays is a microarray probe design application. It enables the design of specific probes for each gene in an entire genome, with an original approach. The use of oligonucleotide microarray technology requires a very detailed attention for the design of specific probes spotted on the solid phase. These problems are far from being commonplace since they refer to complex physicochemical constraints. We propose a new approach to design oligonucleotides which combines good specificity with a potentially high sensitivity. This approach is original in the biological point of view as far as in the algorithmic point of view, and is particularly adapted when dealing with a complex target mixture (where it's difficult to find specific sequences for all genes).
