The anatomical expression pattern of the gene corresponding to each cDNA sequence was inferred. The human orthologs of each cDNA sequence were used to infer anatomical gene expression patterns using expression data (egenetic data) obtained from biomart. The results include 114 anatomical regions exhibiting expression of 766 genes encoding the cDNA sequences. The number of genes with inferred expression in each region is indicated (Number of Genes), as well the percentage of genes with inferred expression in each region (% of Genes).
