Directly search expressed sequence tags with Mascot

Cool tips in this month's Mascot Newsletter for those of you who are studying weird things that haven't gotten fully annotated genomes.  Search with your MS/MS data against Expressed Sequence Tags (EST).  The newsletter highlights one fish that only has 1,200 annotated proteins but nearly a quarter-million ESTs.  Sure, its more work for you to sort it out, but it beats only coming up with 1,200 proteins and they'll annotate it all someday!
