[Bioperl-l] script to load ITIS taxonomy

Hi all -

I added a script to load the ITIS taxonomy (www.itis.gov) into the  
phylodb module. It is called load_itis_taxonomy.pl and is in the  
scripts/ directory.

It is independent of BioPerl right now (the ITIS download is either a  
MS SQL Server or an Informix dump - no kidding), but I'm hoping that  
at some point support for this can be integrated into Bio::TreeIO.
