PROBER is an oligonucleotide primer design software application that can generate highly specific probes for use in fluorescence in-situ hybridization (FISH) and other in-situ labeling methods by densely tiling relatively small genomic intervals. Generating Tiling Oligonucleotide Probes (TOPs) requires software capable of masking repetitive genomic sequences and saturating unique contiguous blocks with small (100-2000bp), DNA probes that will generate a single, strong fluorescent signal for regions as small as a single gene.
