After image acquisition and spot intensity quantification, the intensity of fluorescence on these negative controls should always be monitored and be extremely low when compared to the test intensities along the microarray. It is also valuable if possible within the array design to include controls for the estimation of the dosage response on the array. For example, adding clones representing sequences on chromosome X can be used to estimate the ratio deviation due to the presence of one copy in a male test DNA compared to 2 copies in a reference female DNA.

1. Adjust score weights (if needed). It is recommended to keep the default settings. 0. 2. Bring up the Oligo Placement window. ’’ button to launch the probe selection dialog (see Fig. 3). 3. Select probe placement criteria. For short probes ($25 bp) 8 probes or more per target sequence is recommended, for long probes (50–70 bp) 2–4 (or more) is recommended (1). 4. Apply selection criteria. Press the Apply to all button to search for probes fulfilling the criteria in the entire data set. (The Apply button can be used to test the criteria on a single sequence).
