Abstract
Microarrays have great potential for the study of developmental biology. As a model system Xenopus is well suited for making the most of
this potential. However, Xenopus laevis has undergone a genome wide duplication meaning that most genes are represented by two
paralogues. This causes a number of problems. Most importantly the presence of duplicated genes mean that a X. laevis microarray will have
