Overall profiles of the uniqueness and GC content of oligonucleotide microarray elements in the 12 designed theoretical microarray sets. Four algorithms OligoRankPick, ArrayoligoSelector, OligoPicker, and OligoArray2.1 were used to design long oligonucleotide DNA microarray sets for P. falciparum, E. coli and S. cerevisiae. Contour plots illustrate oligonucleotide density plotted of along the uniqueness scores (second target BLAST scores) and GC contents. The oligonucleotide density is is calculated as -log10(N/Nmax) (N ~ number of oligonucletide in a given area and Nmax ~ number of oligonucleotide in the most dense area)and displayed using the indicated by the color based scale.
