Unfortunately for your friend without Internet access, the easiest way
involves e-mail.  Send a message to retrieve at ncbi.nlm.nih.gov (an
Internet address) with the word help as the only text of the message. 
You will get back instructions about retrieving sequences from the
GenBank, EMBL, and several other sequence databases.

There should be an "access number" in the article.  You will need it to
retrieve the sequence from "Los Alamos."

Good luck,

Jim Owens
