A database integrating data from the bee brain EST sequencing project with data from sequencing and gene research projects from other organisms, primarily the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster.
The goal of Bee-ESTdb is to provide updated information on the genes of the honey bee, currently using annotation primarily from flies to suggest cellular roles, biological functions, and evolutionary relationships. The site allows searches by sequence ID, EST annotations, Gene Ontology terms, Contig ID and using BLAST. Very nice resource for those interested in comparative genomics of brain.
A normalized unidirectional cDNA library was made in the laboratory of Prof. Bento Soares, University of Iowa. The library was subsequently subtracted. Over 20,000 cDNA clones were partially sequenced from the normalized and subtracted libraries at the Keck Center, resulting in 15,311 vector-trimmed, high-quality, sequences with an average read length of 494 bp. and average base-quality of 41. These sequences were assembled into 8966 putatively unique sequences, which were tested for similarity to sequences in the public databases with a variety of BLAST searches.
The Clemson University Genomics Institute is the distributor of these public domain cDNA clones. For information on how to purchase an individual clone or the entire collection, please contact www.genome.clemson.edu/orders/ or generobi (at) life.uiuc.edu.
