The current release of dbEST contains more than 8000 partial cDNA 
sequences from Arabidopsis.  An efficient way to search for your 
favorite gene/protein is to use the new NCBI world wide web server at
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov    Using suitable software such as 
mosaic, you can move around in this by clicking on the blue words 
(hypertext links).  One of the options is to search dbEST by a full 
text search of the records.   In order to hit only the Arabidopsis 
genes use the word "cress" which is unique to Arabidopsis files 
(Arabidopsis is not a unique  word since any human or C elegans EST that hits 
an Arabidopsis clone also has it).  Thus, for instance, to view the 
316 ESTs with significant homology to kinases use the search phrase
cress and kinase
   
Have fun,
