    A new Approach to EST Data Analysis.The concept is based on establishing a correlation between several tags extracted from EST sequence collections at different distances from the poly (A) region. By extracting tags at the extreme 3′-end and internal tags from the EST sequences, complexity is reduced, clustering of similar transcripts into larger groups (populations of tags) is possible, and 3′-terminal variants, mostly in the 3′-UTR, within these groups are rapidly identified.
