Abstract MOTIVATION: Selecting oligonucleotide probes for use in microarray design, and other applications requiring signature sequences, involves identifying sequences which will bind strongly to their intended target, while binding only weakly (or preferably, not at all) to non-target sequences which may be present in the hybridization reaction. While many tools to assist in selection of such sequences exist, all the ones we examined lack important oligo design and software features. RESULTS: YODA is an application for assisting biological researchers in selecting signature sequences. It incorporates a custom sequence similarity search to find potential cross-hybridizing non-target sequences. For this task, most oligo design tools rely on BLAST, which is ill suited for it due to an unacceptable risk of false negatives. YODA supports multiple probe design goals including single-genome, multiple-genome, pathogen-host and species/strain-identification. A graphical interface is provided as well as a command-line interface, both of which support many user-controlled parameters. YODA is easy to install and use and runs on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux platforms.
