This is not a strictly bioperl question so I'll take non-bioperl related
I need to setup a local mirror of most of GenBank (I don't need the ESTs
or indexes). There seems to be several ways to achieve this, but no
single definitive solution. I'd like to keep the files in their gzipped
form. And my copies don't need to be too fresh, up to a week old should
be acceptable. Can anyone recommend, or warn me away from *ANY* of these
Is there a suitable part of bioperl?
Has anyone used BioMirror.pm?
What about ftpmirror?
What about mirror? (It's hard to find a current copy, the word is too
common. Is anyone still using this?)
I'm about 10 miles away from the NIH, and not connected to the I2
network. Is there any reason to prefer mirroring off of
