I'm using the following code to access the "ORGANISM" tag value for the
record NC_002526.
I get a value of 0 even though the ORGANISM tag  has a value.  Any idea how
this might be corrected?

my $gb= new Bio::DB::GenBank;

my $seq = $gb->get_Seq_by_acc('NC_002526');

my $des= $seq->get_tag_values("ORGANISM");
