  1. (A) Amblyomma americanum EST sequences matching Ixodes scapularis genomic datasets and (B) I. scapularis EST sequences matching other I. scapularis datasets. Ixodes scapularis datasets include ESTs, predicted peptides, singletons, and assembled contigs. (A) Amblyomma americanum results are categorized according to UniProtKB annotation status (annotation, no annotation) and I. scapularis match status (match, no match). The proportion of the A. americanum ESTs with a match is provided in parentheses for each I. scapularis dataset. (B) BLAST searches of I. scapularis ESTs (N = 194,460) against the three other I. scapularis datasets were then conducted to evaluate the quality of these datasets. These are classified according to match status. The proportion of I. scapularis ESTs with a match is provided in parentheses.
