like first link on Google :roll:

STS is obviously a marker, so it has nothing to do with ESTs and GSSs

EST is sequence got from mRNA (i.e. after splicing and stuff), while GSS is from the genomic DNA

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

In addition, STS and EST are markers use in physical mapping of genome.
