In our ongoing EST & microarray analysis of Drosophila testis gene
expression, we are finding that ~20% of EST that show significant
preferential expression in the testis (assayed by microarrays) do not match
version 1.0 predicted genes.  Overall ~16% of the testis ESTs fail to match
predicted genes.  

Are there comparable numbers for the complete BDGP EST collection?
