  1. Note that one gene product may be assigned to more than one GO terms, and one children term can fit into multiple parental categories. The representation means the number of non-redundant ESTs that can be mapped to a certain GO term. The representation percentage is based on the total number of GO mappings in each of the three major ontologies (biological process: 420, molecular function: 364, cellular component: 180).
