Can anyone point me to sets (matrices) of aligned protein sequences 
for use in benchmarking software for phylogenetic inference?

I'm hoping to find something similar to the Green Plant phylogeny 
group's 232-sequence rRNA "challenge" data set -- only with protein 

Something on the order of 12 to 40 protein sequences, of 100-400 aa's 
in length each and without too many alignment gaps, would be ideal. 
The data might be either real, or generated according to a specified 

As I'm not a subscriber to this list, please email me directly at:
