Using computer-aided genomic methods, a complete map of the expressed sequence tags (EST) located in the human genome region 13q14.3 between the STS markers, D13S810 and D13S1469, was constructed. A total of 62 EST clusters were formed, of which 12 clusters corresponded to the already known human genes, 4 clusters represented pseudogenes, and 10 clusters were new human genes. The use of the method of reverse transcription in combination with polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) provided experimental confirmation of the existence of mRNA transcripts for the novel human genes revealed in silico.
