[Bioperl-l] producing an organism report from BLAST results?

Hi Tim,
I am getting confused. Are you looking for a way to get your hands on the taxblast report as a result of performing a remote blast @ NCBI. Or rather, trying to implement locally a blast facility producing a taxblast report similar to the NCBI web site ?

by looking thru the source (which appears to be rather out of sync with the
documentation) i discovered that this line has to be:

$Bio::Tools::Run::RemoteBlast::RETRIEVALHEADER{'NCBI_GI'} = 'yes';

because NCBI_GI is a paramater of the GET cmd.

this is an odd arrangement (shouldn't these paramaters be set via the
RemoteBlast constructor?) but it works.

i have not yet been able to obtain the taxonomy relating to a gi number, but
i am still working at it.
