Database Description

The TIGR Plant Transcript Assemblies (TA) database (http://plantta.tigr.org) uses expressed sequences collected from the NCBI GenBank Nucleotide database for the construction of transcript assemblies. The sequences collected include expressed Sequence Tags (ESTs) and full-length and partial cDNAs, but exclude computationally predicted gene sequences. The TA database includes all plant species for which more than 1,000 EST and cDNA sequences are publicly available. The database can be searched by species, by keyword or by sequence via BLAST. The sequences of the TAs are available for downloading.

Recent Developments

The current version of the TA database is Release 2 (July 17, 2006) and includes a total of 215 plant species.
