I am sorry for posting it again.. I did it yesterday without a subject line.

I am trying to retrieve records from a genbank index file that I had
created using bp_index.pl. I have set the environment variables as

While fetching records I use the following syntax:

bp_fetch.pl -fmt genbank genbank:50355994 where 50355994 is the GI number
of one of the sequences.

But I don't get any results.

It says sequence 50355994 in database genbank not present.

Can anyone please comment where I may be going wrong.
