A unique ID automatically assigned by DesignStudio.

Target Region

The target region that contains the probe.


The chromosome number.

Estimated Gap Start

The estimated base pair coordinate for the start position of the gap.

Estimated Gap Stop

The estimated base pair coordinate for the stop position of the gap.

Gap Length

The estimated length of the gap in base pairs (bp).
