Table 2 The 20 most frequent, randomly picked, EST sequences in two different oat leaf libraries. Gene family, EST sequences identified as belonging to the indicated gene family; CI, total number of genes found in the indicated family in the cold induced leaf library; % of total, relative amount of genes in the indicated gene family, NI, total number of genes found in the indicated family in the non-induced leaf library.

From: Generation and analysis of 9792 EST sequences from cold acclimated oat, Avena sativa
