Using the oligoscreen Server

It is possible to download an example oligo list file, to demonstrate the interface, by clicking on the link above the "Select List Input" form section.

  1. Select a list file for analysis.

    A list file can be uploaded using the "Select List File" control.
  2. Change default data, if desired.

    The oligoscreen server allows specification of a temperature. This value has a default, so it is not necessary to specify the value in order to do calculations.
  3. Enter an email address where results can be sent, if desired.

    If an email address is specified in the appropriate box, an email will be sent to inform you when calculations are done. Note that failing to enter an email address may cause results to be inaccessible, if you navigate away from the server while calculations are running.
  4. Begin the calculation.

    Press the "Submit Query" button to begin the calculation. If you remain on the server page, the results will appear when they are finished.
