Thank you all for all the helpful answers!
Malcolm- I've used the UCSC server to do the BLAT search (because I 
couldn't run it locally due to memory problems)- so I could not get the 
chimp sequences in a convenient way. I have the results also in a 
normal Blat output including all usual fields: chromosome number etc.
Wade- thanks a lot for your offer, that would be great. The chimp 
genome is just one large fasta format file.
