[Bioperl-l] Entrez Gene and bioperl-db

Since load_seqdatabase.pl will use bioperl's SeqIO parsers for parsing 
any input file, what you're asking is whether or not there is a SeqIO 
parser for NCBI Gene.

The answer to that question is no, not yet. Anybody who feels motivated 
is welcome to give it a try ... Since I'll need it, I'll write the 
parser if nobody else does within the next 3 months, but I'm not going 
to promise when exactly this will happen.
