Library data

In this page, the statistics of the cDNA libraries and sequences contained in PRIGEN are described. Chimpanzee 5'-ESTs were annotated by comparing to human RefSeq transcripts.

Figure 1. Annotation of Chimpanzee 5'-ESTs by comparing to human RefSeq transcripts.
a. Classification by BLAST search (E = 1e-120). 10,180 5'-ESTs were homologous to human RefSeq transcripts (NM and NR) ****.
b. Numbers of annotated 5'-ESTs (RefSeq homologs). The total number of RefSeq transcripts was 5,341, including redundancy. In total 3,942 unique RefSeq transcripts were obtained.

**** Release 23 (May 8, 2007). Sequences with acccession prefixes of NM (curated mRNA) or NR (curated ncRNA) were used.
