SLICSel is a program for designing specific oligonucleotide probes for microbial detection and identification. To obtain maximal specificity of designed oligonucleotides, SLICSel uses the Nearest-Neighbor thermodynamics-based approach for probe design.
Here is a sample target file and sample non-target file.
