I just glanced at the annotated sequences
(http://pgec-genome.pw.usda.gov/annotation.html) and noticed that only 22
of the 54 putative protein coding genes (41%) were represented in the EST
collection.  I expected this number to be somewhat larger.  Is this also
surprising to the folks generating ESTs out there, or is the problem in my
expectations?  Perhaps there are just a lot of expressed genes not in the
cDNA libraries used to generate ESTs...
