Cogeme Phytopathogenic Fungi and Oomycete EST Database

Unrestricted use permitted but please acknowledge source and include the dataset handle.
Expressed sequence tags (ESTs) have been obtained from eighteen species of plant pathogenic fungi, two species of phytopathogenic oomycete and three species of saprophytic fungi. Hierarchical clustering software was used to classify together ESTs representing the same gene and produce a single contig, or consensus sequence. The unisequence set for each pathogen therefore represents a set of unique gene sequences, each one consisting of either a single EST or a contig sequence made from a group of ESTs. Unisequences were annotated based on top hits against the NCBI non-redundant protein database using blastx.
