Hi, I have two questions related to bioSQL (with latest CVS co, and bioperl

1. I am wondering if anyone has tried to load a large sequence (like a whole
chromosome with annotation). It took me overnight to load in a 20Mb sequence
with some 4000 genes-worth annotation, on a laptop of P-III, 750 MHz, and 250Mb
Is there any way to make this faster? besides buying a faster machine ;-)

2. In the taxon table, there is a column 'mito_genetic_code' 
Have people thought about genetic code for plastid genome, such as chloroplast?
