Schematic of S. salar reference FLcDNA identification through individual clone assemblies. Three full-length 5'-CAP enriched libraries were created. A 4,380 clone subset of library rgf was resequenced to completion. Libraries rgg and rgh were bi-directionally sequenced and individually assembled using PHRAP (1). A BLASTX was carried out resulting in a total of 14,384 well-annotated cDNAs (2), which were further reduced to 8,469 FL annotations by increasing the stringency of the local alignment length (3). In-frame annotation-flanking start and stop codons were found from the reduced set, resulting in a set of 7,255 reference FLcDNA candidates (4). Intra-library sequence redundancy was minimized using an all versus all pairwise BLASTN comparison (5), resulting in a total set of 3,204 non-redundant reference FLcDNAs.
