Schretter C, Milinkovitch MC., Automated Long Oligo Design on Consensus Regions of Similar Genomes, Onl J Bioinform.,  6 (1) 99-105, 2005. A method to generate and design a minimal set of long oligos for micro-arrays applications was implemented. The tool is useful for evaluating gene expression in phylogenetically related species with the same micro-array. PYTHON, the BIOPYTHON library, CLUSTALW and the new OLIGOFAKTORY design application that allow communications through XML messages were used and source code is available.


Keywords: bio-python, source-code, XML, micro-array design.
