Distribution of probes in 44 K GPOM. The figure depicts the % distribution of oligonucleotide probes present in the 44 K guinea pig oligonucleotide microarray. The 60mer oligonucleotide probes were designed based on several mammalian species including human (Homo sapiens), mouse (Mus musculus), rat (Rattus norvegicus), rhesus monkey (Macaca mulatta), dog (Canis familiaris), horse (Equus caballus), cat (Felis catus), sheep (Ovis aries), pig (Sus scrofa), chimpanzee (Pan troglodyte), chinchilla (Chinchilla lanigera), gray-tailed opossum (Monodelphis domestica), cattle (Bos taurus) and guinea pig (Cavia porcellus). The % representation of a particular species is calculated with respect to the total number of probes in the array. The figure does not show some of the mammalian species separately for which, the % representation is < 1% and are collectively labelled as – others. Number wise distribution of probes from all the species is given in Table 1.
