I wrote in this group a long time ago and obtained many answers to my
question, so I decided to repeat the experience.
I'm a Chilean Biochemist working in the Plant molecular biology lab in
the Catholic University of Chile. I'm currently trying to perform a
phylogenetic analysis based on rbcL (for the large subunit of Rubisco) gene
sequences. I have some sequences, but need some more to give the analysis more
The problem I have is obtaining rbcL sequences of green algae. I have
used the entrez and other search facilities for finding the sequences
accession numbers, but have obtained very few information. In fact, sequences
wich I know exist and have personally retrieved from genebank (by knowing the
appropiate accession number), do not appear in the search results.
I would highly appreciate any hints about this topic, and if you have
some green algae accession numbers and can send them to me I would be most
thanks in advance for your time and help
