Applications Of Sage

More than 6.8 million SAGE transcript tags have been generated from 171 libraries and stored in CGAP database (http://cgap.nci.nih.gov/SAGE). Table 1 shows various SAGE databases available on the Internet. Many SAGE tags may have no match to known expressed sequences, and the majority of these unmatched novel SAGE tends to be low copies. Use of these novel tags and probes was proposed to allow identification of novel genes in human genomes that are difficult to identify by conventional methods.[20]

SAGE technology has been applied to the fields of cancer research, immunological research, cardiovascular research, brain research, pharmacological and drug discovery research, taxonomy, and transcriptome discovery in all phyla.[1-3,15,20,21]
