have been thinking about this for some time. The problem is that a more
approach is needed since often not only the databank name may vary but
the identifier for the entry which can be either an accession number or
entry name - thinking of the information you find in blast files.
Would like to have a system where all of the following are understood:
to make it even more complicated, we have here at ebi
'virtual databanks' like 'swall' which i think contains:
swissprot, sptrembl, swissnew and sptremblnew
... so definetely for after 5.1 ...any further comments on that?
