OREST -- the online resource for EST analysis

What you can do:
Analyze large amounts of ESTs or cDNAs from mammalia and fungi.
Highlights:
  • In order to assign the ESTs to genes or proteins OREST maps DNA sequences to reference datasets of gene products and in a second step to complete genome sequences.
  • Mapping against genome sequences recovers additional 13% of EST data, which otherwise would escape further analysis.
  • To enable functional analysis of the datasets, ESTs are functionally annotated using the hierarchical FunCat annotation scheme as well as GO annotation terms.
  • OREST also allows to predict the association of gene products and diseases by Morbid Map (OMIM) classification.
  • A statistical analysis of the results of the dataset is possible with the included PROMPT software, which provides information about enrichment and depletion of functional and disease annotation terms.
