Representation of chickpea ESTs in relation to homologous SuperSAGE UniTags. Chickpea UniTags showed a broad range of copy numbers and homologies to ESTs already deposited in the public domain. Several single ESTs were targeted by more than one UniTag. As expected, the addition of copy numbers/EST was larger for ESTs targeted by several UniTags, than for ESTs targeted only by one 26 bp Tag. However, interestingly, the distribution of copy numbers is not equal across all the UniTags targeting the same EST. Very abundant UniTags are frequently accompanied by highly similar 26 bp tags found in lower copy numbers. A) Correlation between the number of chickpea UniTags and their accumulative copy numbers per target EST B) Distribution of copy numbers across a family of 37 UniTags hitting the same chickpea EST annotated to UniProt accession Q9LIN9_ARATH (unknown protein)
