Questions

Questions (2)
Question
There is a Protein entry for a gene, but the Organism hasn't been completely sequenced (according to NCBI). So there are only contigs of the WSG online. How can I find the Gene to my protein there, given a Locus tag and the AA Sequence?
Question
I am currently looking for enzymes that accept halogenated substrates. They are likely to be found in species that live in halogen-rich environments. To scan databases for such enzymes it is very useful to know which species/phylum is associated with halogens.
