  1. Assignment of EST fragments by functional category and the percent representation of each category in the collection of the O. novo-ulmi yeast LMW library.
  2. 1Based upon the MIPS classification scheme for the functional annotation of protein sequences [50].
  3. 2Classification of known yeast LMW sequences, as determined by BLASTX searches and homology to sequences of known identity.
  4. 3Relative percentage of known yeast LMW sequences in each functional category.
