Expressed Sequence Tags of Randomly Selected cDNA Clones from Eucalyptus globulus–Pisolithus tinctorius Ectomycorrhiza. Denis Tagu and Francis Martin, Equipe de Microbiologie Forestière, Centre I. N.

Random sequencing of cDNA clones from Eucalyptus globulus–Pisolithus tinctorius ectomycorrhizal tissues was carried out to generate expressed sequence tags (ESTs).  Database comparisons revealed that 42% of the cDNAs corresponded to previously sequenced genes.  These ESTs represent efficient molecular markers to analyze changes in gene expression during the formation of the ectomycorrhizal symbiosis.
