Expressed sequence tags (ESTs) are fragmented, single-pass reads that are processed into nonredundant gene loci to produce gene indices that are useful for genome sequence annotation. Three gene-indexing projects, namely, UniGene, STACK, and TIGR gene index have been developed independently in order to meet specific research goals. The utility of these indices have been enhanced by the availability of visualization tools for exploratory data analysis. In addition, the clustering tools for the generation of STACK and TIGR gene indices are made available to the research community.
