For a list of approx. 20 GI numbers (NCBI GenBank IDs) I need the taxon
ID as given in the corresponding full GenBank record. Which is the
easiest way to accomplish this task automatically? Does Bioperl help?
Can one access this function via the NCBI website (possibly, using
Bioperl)? Or, does one have to download the whole GenBank database?
All I could find out is that there is a function 'gi2taxid' in the NCBI
toolkit, but I have no experience with using the toolkit, and I hope
that there is an easier 'Bioperl' way to solve the problem - could
BIO::DB::NCBIHelper be the way to go? Any help or hints are greatly
