  1. Forward SSH cDNA library, representing the salt-induced genes, was constructed considering the mRNA isolated from the leaves of the NaCl-treated (24 h) plant as 'Tester' and that from the leaves of the control plant as 'Driver'. The cDNAs of the library were cloned and transformed and 502 ESTs from such clones were sequenced. The results are summarized.
  2. aPercentage of the faction of ESTs assembled in the contigs/total no. of ESTs.
  3. bPercentage of the fraction of ESTs in a contig/total no. of ESTs
