 Hi -

 I had some prior experiences with the NCBI taxonomy database. If the
EMBL one is pretty much the same then it would strongly get my vote

Does anybody have any strong opinions about taxanomic data in BioJava? I

was going to pop in a new package org.biojava.bio.taxa with interfaces &

in-memory implementations of taxonomies. The aim is that this should 
play well with the ebi taxonomy database (and by extention the taxonomy 
stuff in embl & swissprot files). This will not be merged into the 1.2 
release untill/unless it gets very stable very quickly.

All views greatfully accepted. If this code already exists out there 
somewhere, I would be more than happy to take a copy & BioJava'ise it & 
check it in.

I've attached my simple/stupid taxa interface.
