Utilizes homology searches against a database of repetitive elements using the RepeatView program and the expressed sequence tag (EST). Division of GenBank using the BLASTN program. ESTMAP extracts “exact” matches with EST sequences (>95% of homology) from BLASTN output file and predicts introns in DNA comparing ESTs and a query sequence. It allows detailed analysis of EST matches and predicted introns using the graphical visualization of the results.
