Subtracted and size-selected unsubtracted cDNA libraries were created to examine gene expression in the woody tissues of Castanea dentata. A total of 50 clones were sequenced and comparisons were made to the GenBank database. Expression analysis of 20 selected clones revealed that 13 were expressed predominantly in the stem and leaf tissues, while the other seven were present in all tissues examined.
