Abstract

We have developed a computational subtraction approach to detect microbial causes for putative infectious diseases by filtering a set of human tissue-derived sequences against the human genome. We demonstrate the potential of this method by identifying sequences from known pathogens in established expressed-sequence tag libraries.
