Interpretive Summary: A software tool was developed to speed processing of information gained from DNA hybridization patterns stamped to high-density grids. The gridding patterns matched to clones which were housed in microtiter dishes. High-throughput methodologies have made it increasingly difficult to work with large archives of stored resources. The method developed to ease this effort was a software package called Hybsweeper, and was applied to laboratory work associated with simple probing methods, overgo probe hybridizations, and isolation of unique clones from saturation hybridization conditions.
