I don't think there is anything in GCG or in EGCG aside from prime.  
 We have primer3 and OSP installed, but they're not too popular  
around here.  You can goto:  
http://www.ebi.ac.uk/biocat/Oligomer_design_and_synthesis.htm to  
check out what is available there - a pretty long list.  Most of the  
programs seem to be designed to do PCR rather than hybridization.

We have a person here that uses a program called hybsimulator and  
loves it.  It's unfortunately $$.  you can check it out at:


MacVector has a kinda neat feature that scans protein sequences for  
Hyb probes, but does not tell you anything about secondary  
structure or alternate binding sites.

Good Luck.
