Abstract
<p>Abstract</p> <p>Background</p> <p>The horizontal transfer of expressed genes from Bacteria into Ciliates which live in close contact with each other in the rumen (the foregut of ruminants) was studied using ciliate Expressed Sequence Tags (ESTs). More than 4000 ESTs were sequenced from representatives of the two major groups of rumen Cilates: the order Entodiniomorphida (<it>Entodinium simplex, Entodinium caudatum, Eudiplodinium maggii, Metadinium medium, Diploplastron affine, Polyplastron multivesiculatum </it>and <it>Epidinium ecaudatum</it>) and the order Vestibuliferida, previously called Holotricha (<it>Isotricha prostoma, Isotricha intestinalis </it>and...
