  1. Clustered ESTs (W) were from the Parasitic Nematode Sequencing Project at Washington University. Raw ESTs (N) were extracted from NCBI's GenBank. Mi, Meloidogyne incognita; Mj, M. javanica; Mh, M. hapla. 'Original number' gives the size of the initial dataset. For both screens, matches were declared when e-values were less than 1.0e-10. The percentage of the original number of sequences remaining after each screen is listed in parentheses. 'Final candidates' reflects total number of candidates after removal of redundancy.
