TM-1 ovule (-3 ~ +3 DPA) full-length cDNA library construction was completed. 51,072 clones were arrayed in 384-well plates (133 plates). Duplicate sets were made and one set was sent to TIGR for sequencing. 49,920 cDNAs (130 plates) are being sequenced at TIGR and ~40,000 ESTs are expected to be generated soon.
