Genes whose products function in a common biological process are often co-regulated. When regulation occurs at the transcriptional level, co-expressed genes can be detected globally by expression arrays or by sequencing non-normalized cDNA libraries. We examined bovine gene expression in 27 tissues using non-normalized cDNA library sequencing. Contigs were generated from expressed sequence tags whose sequences overlapped. Contigs containing a minimum of five expressed sequence tags were ordered… CONTINUE READING
