Yeast/vs. Human ESTs

Thu Jan 25 03:45:23 EST 1996

Doug Basset (NCBI) has provided the web address of a collection of yeast/
human homologs. Another usefull resource is available that allows inter-
active queries to find EST homologs. It is based on a powerfull index
structure (HPT, see Mewes and Heumann LNCS 937, p 261-285, 1995). The
up-to-date EST databases (6 frame translations) are compared to the
latest version of the yeast sequence database at MIPS. The address of
the server is:

Please note that slow data transfer from the US is caused by insufficient
bandwith over the Atlantic and not by slow local systems. Connection to
the interface is provided by a gateway (i.e. a program is called to per-
form the computation). Please don't hesitate to send your questions/
