Abundance of annotated ESTs in FGAS contigs relative to NSF-DuPont contigs within select GO classes. A) Number of annotated ESTs. The GO counts were added for each dataset and the percentage of ESTs for each GO was calculated based on this total count. B) The relative abundance for each GO is compared between the FGAS (blue) and the NSF-DuPont (red) datasets by comparing the percentage of each GO as determined in A. GO categories: 1. Biological Process GO:0008150; 2. Transcription GO:0006350; 3. Protein Metabolism GO:0019538; 4. Enzyme Regulator Activity GO:0030234; 5. Nutrient Reservoir Activity GO:0045735; 6. Transcription Factor Activity GO:0003700; 7. Nuclease Activity GO:0004518; 8. Plasma Membrane GO:0005886; 9. Secondary Metabolism GO:0019748; 10. Response to External Stimulus GO:0009605; 11. Carbohydrate Binding GO:0030246; 12. Response to Abiotic Stimulus GO:0009628; 13. Cell-Cell Signalling GO:0007267; 14. Development GO:0007275; 15. Behaviour GO:0007610.
