Find a comparison of six Arthropod species EST gene assemblies here
EST assembly data are provided, along with gene model udpates
produced with PASA EST assembly software.
EST mapping errors and duplicate locations are analyzed with respect to
assembly unit size (scaffolds), showing an error increase on smaller scaffolds.
The species include arachnid tick Ixodes, the crustacean waterflea Daphnia,
and 4 insects: Bombyx silk moth, Drosophila fruitfly, Nasonia wasp
and Acyrthosiphon aphid. You can find some extreme results among these:
- Which of these have official gene models that missed over 50%
of EST assemblies?
- Which of these have 3 times more ESTs split between scaffolds, and
a perhaps corresponding missed coding exon per gene model, on average?
You can get answers to these questions on the bionet.Arthropod news group,
