These are the official documentation files for the Featurama0.7 software.
In here you will find usage instructions, technical caveats,
important limitations to be aware of, error message decodings,
algorithm explanation, development information, and hopefully more.
Given the technology to manufacture high density
oligo microarrays in relatively short time, the biological
scientist using microarrays has the ability to perpetually design new
experiments. While this is great for biology, the scientist must now assume
the meddlesome task of designing thousands of unique features
for every microarray that they use. Featurama's purpose is too make this task
simpler by automating the process while being flexible enough to run
on a standard desktop Linux computer, in reasonable timing and memory
constraints, on any biological organism the DNA sequence of which is known.
