Table 1 Analysis of a group of EST libraries from a common sample. Each of these EST libraries was generated from a common tissue sample. Distance is calculated as L-divergence (Equation 3) between distributions of cDNA and transcript lengths for each library. The targeted size range of the cDNA inserts for each library ranges from 0.5 k to 7 k as described previously [30]
