Table 3 Distribution of differentially expressed genes from the Hw4.5-3 library by functional categories. Functional categorization was performed according to the MIPS database [22, 23] and annotated by the FunCat functional annotation scheme for systematic classification [22, 23]. Grouping of genes into indicated groups is shown as percent (%) of total identified EST from Hw4.5-3 library in descending order of abundance.
