Hi Motoaki,

You may be able to get the information you need from the Arabidopsis
Genome Resource (AGR) database (  This contains all
sequences that are in EMBL, but if you go to the AGR query page:

and then paste in the following query:

Find Sequence; !AGI_sequence; !Arabidopsis_EST; !Arabidopsis_GSS; 

This will return a list of about 60,000 sequences which have not been
annotated as an AGI clone sequence, EST, Genome survey sequence (GSS) or
insert sequence.  If you just want to find predicted genes add ';*cds' to
the above query (omit the apostrophes).

This will return you a list of about 40,000 predicted genes.  These have
all been blast searched against plant protein sequences in SwissProt and
all Arabidopsis genomic DNA.

Hope this helps,
