Could someone please tell me how to go about finding and comparing the
sequences of homologous genes from different organisms, in the sequence
What I would like to do is to find published sequences of gene X from
different organisms, line them up, and identify conserved regions.
Specifically, I am interested in the internal transcribed spacer region of
ribosomal DNA - a lot of work has been done on this region, from lots of
different organisms, so perhaps there is a recent published article which
compares the sequences found from very different taxa. If anyone
knows of such (or, better still, has written it!), could they tell me
about it, please?
Please E-mail replies to me.
Thanks, Adam Marchant.
