Development of a citrus genome-wide EST collection and cDNA microarray as resources for genomic studies

To initiate the analysis of citrus transcriptome, we have developed a cDNA microarray containing 12,672 probes corresponding to 6875 putative unigenes of the collection

Scholarcy highlights

  • A functional genomics project has been initiated to approach the molecular characterization of the main biological and agronomical traits of citrus
  • The collection includes a total of 22,635 high-quality ESTs, grouped in 11,836 putative unigenes, which represent at least one third of the estimated number of genes in the citrus genome
  • Functional annotation of unigenes which have Arabidopsis orthologues revealed gene representation in every major functional category, suggesting that a genome-wide EST collection was obtained
  • To initiate the analysis of citrus transcriptome, we have developed a cDNA microarray containing 12,672 probes corresponding to 6875 putative unigenes of the collection
