Can VectorBase Cluster my ESTs?


VectorBase has been contracted to work on the genomic resources for some organisms (Anopheles, Aedes, Culex etc.). We do our best to make available data from other invertebrate vectors of human pathogens but at the moment we can't process any other data (lack of man power). There are many tools freely available for EST clustering.

If you produce your annotations as simple text files compatible with our GDAV server software, then VectorBase can help you get your annotations up on the web and linked to the VectorBase genomes (via DAS tracks). For some ideas on how to perform EST annotations, see our preliminary Anopheles albimanus pipeline. Just get in touch via the help desk if you need any help.
