Description of D. pulex oligonucleotide microarray
The generation-3 microarray is composed of 10,000 oligonucleotides (70 mers) designed from unique gene transcripts. Based on the sequence similarity of 5,982 cDNA matched to characterized proteomes from other model systems, 3,525 are annotated with gene ontologies (GO).
Daphnia oligo-design methods are documented for future reference.
Gal file identifying the placement of oligos on the array and their annotations can be obtained.
