Note revised title

We present Green Bank Telescope observations of molecular lines towards the Taurus Molecular Cloud, which exhibits strong lines from the largest carbon chain molecules detected in Interstellar Space. These observations are important because they provide clues to the chemical processes creating large molecules in the interstellar medium. In particular we note that these molecules are detected in very cold regions and speculate that these conditions are required for the formation of the largest molecules.

We conclude with a review of the new capabilities at the Green Bank Telescope and their relevance to the ALMA observatory.
