Expressed sequence tags (EST) responsive to abiotic stressors were studied in two Fucus species. From over 12000 EST from three libraries for heat shock/recovery and desiccation/rehydration 2503, 1290 and 2409 unigenes were identified from heat-shocked F serratus, desicacted F serratus and desiccated F vesiculosus, respectively.
