  1. Numbers of amino acid sequence top matches of translated Hirudo clustered ESTs to protein sequences available in public databases of seven organisms with sequenced genomes. The order of the species reflects the descending number of first rank matches, i.e., the number of instances where the best match was to a particular species. Numbers in bold are maxima for each rank
