Application of cover-free codes and combinatorial designs to two-stage testing
Abstract:
We study combinatorial and probabilistic properties of cover-free codes and block-designs, which are useful for their efficient application as the first stage of two-stage group testing procedures. Particular attention is paid to these procedures because of their importance in such applications as monoclonal antibody generation and cDNA library screening.
Keywords:
block-designs, cover-free codes, Steiner systems, two-stage testing.
