Pooling design is a mathematical tool with many applications in molecular biology, specially to reduce the number of tests for DNA library screening. In this note, we study construction of pooling design and present an improvement to a recent new construction given by Du et al. (J. Comput. Biol. 13:990-995, 2006).
