[Bioperl-l] Interface directly to Unigene DB at NCBI?

Hi Jeffrey,

As NCBI only updates their unigene build every three weeks or so I've 
always found it just as easy to download the appropriate *.data file 
and load it into a local database and search that. That speeds it up 
for me and takes the load off NCBI servers.

Not really an answer sorry, but I hope this helps.
