I try to download Sequences via NCBISequenceDB, but is dos not work. I
get an Error: org.biojava.bio.BioException: Could not read sequence
I try also with the 1.5 BIO-JAVA but it also not work. I found that the
BIO-JAVA start a request with on with this URL:
the result is a XML, but BIO-JAVA expect a FASTA fil [at
It looks like that NCBI has changed the API.
