1. The redundancy of sequences in dbEST has approached a level where contiguous cDNA sequences of genes can be assembled, without the need to physically handle the clones from which the ESTs are derived. This is termed EST based in silico gene cloning. With the availability of sequence chromatogram files for a subset of ESTs, the quality of EST sequences can be ascertained accurately and used in contig assembly. In this report, we performed a study using this approach and isolated five novel human genes, C11orf1-C11orf5, in the 11q13-q22 region. The full open reading frames of these genes were determined by comparison with their orthologs, of which four mouse orthologs were isolated (c11orf1, c11orf2, c11orf3 and c11orf5). These genes were then analyzed using several proteomics tools. Both C11orf1 and C11orf2 are nuclear proteins with no other distinguishing features. C11orf3 is a cytoplasmic protein containing an ATP/GTP binding site, a signal peptide located in the N-terminus and a similarity to the C. elegans protein "Probable ARP 2/3 complex 20kD subunit." C11orf4 is a peptide which displays four putative transmembrane domains and is predicted to have a cytoplasmic localization. It contains signal peptides at the N- and C-termini. C11orf5 is a putative nuclear protein displaying a central coiled coil domain. Here, we propose that this purely EST-based cloning approach can be used by modestly sized laboratories to rapidly and accurately characterize and map a significant number of human genes without the need of further sequencing.

2. This study describes comprehensive polling of transcription start and termination sites and analysis of previously unidentified full-length complementary DNAs derived from the mouse genome. We identify the 5' and 3' boundaries of 181,047 transcripts with extensive variation in transcripts arising from alternative promoter usage, splicing, and polyadenylation. There are 16,247 new mouse protein-coding transcripts, including 5154 encoding previously unidentified proteins. Genomic mapping of the transcriptome reveals transcriptional forests, with overlapping transcription on both strands, separated by deserts in which few transcripts are observed. The data provide a comprehensive platform for the comparative analysis of mammalian transcriptional regulation in differentiation and development. PMID: [16141072] 

3. The National Institutes of Health's Mammalian Gene Collection (MGC) project was designed to generate and sequence a publicly accessible cDNA resource containing a complete open reading frame (ORF) for every human and mouse gene. The project initially used a random strategy to select clones from a large number of cDNA libraries from diverse tissues. Candidate clones were chosen based on 5'-EST sequences, and then fully sequenced to high accuracy and analyzed by algorithms developed for this project. Currently, more than 11,000 human and 10,000 mouse genes are represented in MGC by at least one clone with a full ORF. The random selection approach is now reaching a saturation point, and a transition to protocols targeted at the missing transcripts is now required to complete the mouse and human collections. Comparison of the sequence of the MGC clones to reference genome sequences reveals that most cDNA clones are of very high sequence quality, although it is likely that some cDNAs may carry missense variants as a consequence of experimental artifact, such as PCR, cloning, or reverse transcriptase errors. Recently, a rat cDNA component was added to the project, and ongoing frog (Xenopus) and zebrafish (Danio) cDNA projects were expanded to take advantage of the high-throughput MGC pipeline.
