"Whole Genome" Microarrays:
- 21,000+ feature long oligo array: A set of 70 mer oligos was designed by Richard Talbot and colleagues at the Roslin Institute based upon ENSEMBL gene transcripts, the BBSRC fully sequenced set and the DT40 full length cDNAs using programs that have been used to design 50mer human and mouse long oligo sets. The initial chicken set was then modified somewhat to remove several thousand non coding RNA sequences (microRNAs were retained). A consortium of eleven laboratories purchased a large quantity of oligos. We have printed microarrays using this oligo set that are available for purchase.
