Bio301: A Web Based EST Annotation Pipeline That Facilitates Functional Comparison Studies

ISRN Bioinform
PMCID: 4407203
PMID: 25969743
DOI: 10.5402/2012/139842

[…] nd looked for their best features. For example, annot8r [], ESTpiper [], and EST2uni [] have extensive annotation modules. GO-Diff [] mines functional differences between two annotated EST libraries. OREST [] has a user-friendly web interface for annotating ESTs and compares them with model organisms. Since each of these tools has its own strength and shortcomings, in the creation of Bio301, we so […]


FragIdent – Automatic identification and characterisation of cDNA fragments

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 2672089
PMID: 19254371
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-10-95

[…] A system for bacterial genomes (SABIA []). Other applications focus on EST sequences, and although they are useful to identify and characterise genes contained in a cDNA clone (AutoFACT[], EST-PAC[], OREST[]), they cannot easily be employed to judge the length of the insert in a cDNA clone nor design new primers needed to sequence the whole insert. EST Express [], on the other hand, can discrimina […]
