Oliz is a suite of Perl scripts that selects 50mer oligonucleotides for use in DNA microarrays. Its features include:
- Uses UniGene cluster ID as input.
- Selects 50mers from the 3'untranslated region.
- Filters 50mers through automated blast search for gene specificity.
- Oliz is free for use in academic institutions. Commercial users please contact the authors for availability.
- OS: written for Linux/Unix; May work under Mac OS X (haven't been tested); Not compatible with MS Windows.
