ProbeWiz Server

The CBS ProbeWiz server predicts optimal PCR primer pairs for generation of probes for cDNA arrays. The input to the software is a list of GenBank accession numbers or pasted in sequenses in FASTA format.
A similar server for designing oligonucleotide probes for microarrays named OligoWiz2 also exists.
