The 5'-end attachment of oligonucleotides to dextran supports facilitates the study of the hybridization properties of an immobilized oligonucleotide system. The hybridization properties which were studied include: hybridization capacity and kinetics, hybridization-complex stability, and reagents influencing hybridization efficiency. Results of these… (More)
A collection of computer programs is described which permit automatic entering of nucleotide sequence data directly from an autoradiograph into a computer. This collection, called DIGITPAD, makes use of a digitizing tablet for the data entry and allows the rapid and accurate transfer of the sequence into the computer.
