  1. * ESTs of the selected genes were matched to the sequences in the Gene Ontology. Total 780 out of 1561 genes were assigned to different biological process, and 666 and 960 out of 1561 genes were assigned to GO terms: "Cell Components" and "Molecular Function" respectively. Individual gene can have multiple Gene Ontology assignments. About 454 genes have no hints in the Gene Ontology. The detailed results are provided in the Additional file 2 and 6.
