Probe Database Overview

The NCBI Probe Database (ProbeDB) is a public registry of nucleic acid reagents designed for use in a wide variety of biomedical research applications, together with information on reagent distributors, probe effectiveness, and computed sequence similarities.

Basic, well-illustrated tutorials are available by clicking on the links listed on the right-hand navigation bar throughout the Probe Database. The tutorials give short descriptions of different probe technologies and their uses in research and medicine, as well as brief synopses of large-scale projects based on probe-generated data.

We welcome your feedback on the NCBI Probe Database. For comment and questions please contact:
