Very good point Brian! In fact, I have the complete sequence of transposon
Tn5 in my possession that was put together by someone else on the net.
BUT, this is not within GenBank. I will gladly submit it, but I'm afraid
I'll be responsible for errors within the sequence I have. If someone from
Doug Berg's Lab or Bill Reznikoff's Lab will confirm it, I can get it into
GenBank right away.
