My problem is the following:
I am trying to download some sequences from ncbi using the ape package.

seq1 <- paste("DQ", seq(060054, 060060), sep = "")

sequences <- read.GenBank(seq1,
seq.names = seq1,
species.names = TRUE,
gene.names = FALSE,
as.character = TRUE)

write.dna(sequences, "mysequences.fas", format = "fasta")

My problem is, that R doesn't take the whole sequence number as "060054"

Could please tell me, how I can get R to accepting the zero in the
beginning of the accession number?

Thank you very much in advance and all the best!
