Dear All,

I'm looking for a way to download large numbers of genbank format
sequence files. By large numbers, I mean thousands. Does anybody know
of any programs available to do the transfer preferably by ftp? I know
about the online batch retrieve offered by NCBI but I'm looking for a
program I can automate. Please send replies to:
