Hi,

Examples of some strange "dusty" sequence published by Indian people at
NCBI. I compared accesion HQ883974 and HQ883972.1 deposited at genbank as
from different especies.

The sequence appears to be the same except that one have 8 bases at one end.
Both were released same day
LOCUS       HQ883972                 765 bp    DNA     linear   PLN
26-APR-2011
DEFINITION  Rheum palmatum clone rp1 RAPD marker genomic sequence.

LOCUS       HQ883974                 766 bp    DNA     linear   PLN
26-APR-2011
DEFINITION  Ipomoea batatas clone ib1 RAPD marker genomic sequence.


The BLASTN:query :HQ883974

>gb|HQ883972.1|  Rheum palmatum clone rp1 RAPD marker genomic sequence
Length=765

Reveals a perfect match.
 How do this sequences could be allowed to be deposited at Genbank. It
appears that this example makes GenBank a place to deposit any thing, like
Genbank was a mere box of trashes.

Any ways, I think this is a mistake to be corrected by the authors.Also,
that is unannotated and appears to be a kind of RAPD markers. That would
explain that this is not a true marker.


The following is a recent paper of many of these authors:
