The EST sequences were obtained after Sanger sequencing, quality, contamination and vector removal from cDNA libraries from several coffee tissues

These sequences represent an essential resource for the understanding of the coffee genome and the discovery of genes of agronomic value such as those involved in production of the plant, resistance to diseases and pests, flowering, and cup quality. Link

The EST C. arabica sequences and Unigene assembly with SGN parameters can be also retrieved at the Solanaceae Genomics Network site at solgenomics.net
