The Butterfly EST project is database for finding and retrieving gene sequences expressed in the ButterflyAssembly statistics can be found at http://titan.biotec.uiuc.edu/cgi-bin/ESTWebsite/estima_project_statistics?seqSet=butterfly
|Lib Name:||BF01: A normalized library from Monarch butterflies was constructed from total RNA extracted from brains of migrant and non-migrant, male and female butterflies.|
|Sex:||Male and female|
|Vector:||pBS II SK(+)|
|Protocol:||Bonaldo, M.F., Lennon, G. and Soares, M.B. (1996), Genome Research6(9): 791-806, Genome Research6(9): 791-806|
EST data can be searched and retrieved using the following methods:
Search the database by entering a keyword to retrieve Gene Ontology recognized terms, and then view Butterfly EST annotation for each of those terms. The Gene Ontology Consortium documentation is available at GO documentation.
Enter an EST ID, GENBANK accession ID, or Contig ID to retrieve and download the sequences, view the sequence chromatograph, view the contig structure and the view the sequence annotation.
Search the database by entering a Sequence ID or Human Unigene Number or Gene Symbol to retrieve annotated ESTs for that ID.
Search by BLAST
Cut and paste one or more sequences to BLAST against several EST data sets.
Search by description: Enter a familiar gene or protein name or descriptive term, to look for closely related sequences in the butterfly EST collection. This function allows the searching on the description field of all records retrieved from the BLAST comparisons used in annotation.
Enter a contig id to view the consensus sequences that match with it.
