how to find an overlap BAC

Dear Karen,

TAIR's Sequence Table shows that the neighboring clone at the 5' end of
F18A17 is T14C9. This clone has been completely sequenced but not yet
annotated, as shown on TAIR's Sequence Map. If you click on the clone
names from either the Seq Table or Map, the full entry from AtDB's
database shows that both clones have been sequenced by Cold Spring Harbor
Lab. I used BLAST 2 Sequences with the accessions and did not find an
overlap, suggesting that there may be a gap.

You would be best off contacting Cold Spring Harbor Lab to find out more
information about this.
