Abstract

ESTs provide a cheap and effective short-cut for identifying the majority of an organism's genes. Surveys of ESTs can provide a global view of the gene-expression patterns that distinguish different tissues or cell types. The large collection of human ESTs will soon permit the majority of genes to be placed on a chromosomal map.
