Using Sequences from GenBank to Make Your Own Alignment Your Mission: Download sequences from your taxa of interest (or outgroups or related taxa) from GenBank and align them, either by hand or using Clustal. Print out or email the resulting alignment by February 28. Before you start, you need the following programs: - Java <http://www.java.com/en/download/index.jsp> - Mesquite <http://mesquiteproject.org/mesquite/download/download.html> Or MacClade 1. Go to GenBank, and search the nucleotide (or protein just change everything in this document to protein format) database for the taxon and gene of interest. It is easiest and most sensible to download one gene at a time. 2. Select the sequences you would like to include by checking the little box on the left of each blue underlined number. If you do not select any sequences, GenBank will include everything on the page. 3. From the drop down menu next to “Display,” choose the fasta format. 4.
