  • We sequenced 2939 ESTs from fetal and adult sheep skin. Stages of gestation were picked to coincide with the major events in skin appendage (wool follicle) formation. Clustering analysis generated a nonredundant set of ESTs 2435 strong (83% nonredundant). Approximately 24% of these gave no hit to NCBI build 29 of the human genome, while 35% were tentatively classified by putative function based on BLASTX hits with a p(N) of <10(-4). In addition to bioinformatics analysis of our ESTs and gene… CONTINUE READING
