Conception automatisée d'amorces et de sondes aux fins de diagnostic moléculaire
|Advisor:||Bergeron, Michel G.; Boissinot, Maurice|
|Abstract:||Algorithms for automatic design of PCR primers and of hybridization probes for molecular diagnostics have been created and implemented. The search speed for PCR primers that were at the same time specific, ubiquitary and sensitive was greatly improved by both computation and use of binary consensus of multiple alignments of DNA sequences. The search for specific hybridization probes and also analysis of hybridization potential in general between two sequences was facilitated by synthesis of empirical data gathered from different published papers. Other software for facilitating or automating the execution of different useful tasks were also created. All resulting software allowed both for the validation of algorithms and for the confirmation of their usefullness in executing desired tasks by the members of the research team for which they were written in the first place.|
