Identical accession numbers? I thought this was impossible!!!!
The sequences are identical.
If accession numbers are assigned to a unique sequence, and they only join
together when a merge is made, then how could two entries have the same
numbers? Has anyone looked through the entire database for other duplications
like this? Software which relies on these being unique will miss entries.
