EST_others database split into three parts based on taxonomy

The EST_others database has become so large as to be unmanageable, (24 GB). We have split it into three parts, so there are now five EST databases, in total. If you are not sure which one contains your organism of interest, look it up using the NCBI Taxonomy browser
  • EST_human – TaxID 9606
  • EST_mouse – TaxID 10090
  • EST_chordata (vertebrates other than human and mouse) – TaxID 7711
  • EST_viridiplantae (green plants) – TaxID 33090
  • EST_others (anything not covered above, such as worms, insects, fungi, single-cell organisms, etc.)
