Abstract

Expressed Sequence Tags (ESTs) provide researchers with a quick and inexpensive route for discovering new genes, and data on gene expression and regulation and provide genic markers that help in constructing genome maps. Cacao is an important perennial crop of humid tropics. Cacao EST sequences as available in public domain were downloaded and made into contigs. A total of 769 contigs were made using contigs assembly program pharp. Puative information of contigs were identified using NCBI and ExPASy tools such as BlastX, tblastn.
