Abstract

Discusses the utility of using expressed sequence tag (EST) databases in the genetic analysis of rare, endangered, or invasive plant species. The article highlight the case of using ESTs from the cultivated sunflower, Helianthus annuus, to sequence the rare sunflower, Helianthus verticillatus.
