all-species arrays

I remember reading a summary in the last few weeks about a scientist
developing oligonucleotide arrays that could be used for any cell type in
any species. The basic strategy is to create an array of all possible
oligonucleotide sequences (if you use 16mers, you would have 16exp4 oligos
on the array) and place all possible sequences on an array. You would
screen the arrays for differences and then, based on the oligo sequence,
identify the gene showing differential expression. I can't remember who is
doing this work or where this summary was published. Can anyone give me a
reference for this?
