A total of 30 successful ESTs (expressed sequenced tags) were amplified and sequenced to be intended as a resource for Rosaceae functional genomics data base. 23 EST were isolated from the amplification of Earlygold peach (Prunus persica) cultivar DNA, 5 ESTs were isolated from the amplification of Texas almond cultivar and two ESTs were isolated from the amplification of F1 DNA of their hybrid. All the sequences were tested for similarity using blast in the nbci database. Because these sequence data are new, only 13 sequences found similarity (10 belong to Earlygold peach cv., two belong to Texas almond cultivar and one belongs to their F1 hybrid), whereas the other 17 (13 belong to Earlygold peach cv., three belong to Texas almond cultivar and one belongs to their F1 hybrid) found no significant similarity. The resulting database can be used as a resource of data and links related to peach and almond EST sequences.
Key words: Peach, almond, expressed sequence tags, functional genomics.
