in reply to NCBI sequence fetching

Instead of Bioperl you can try NCBI's eutils. In particular the EFetch tool to retrieve fasta sequences given a list of accession identifiers

    Thank you... Tha fact is that with eFetch I don't know how to start :D

    Can you help me on this aspect?

      In the eutils help page you can find a sample Perl program that you can download and execute locally. Try to understand what it does, and then try to modify it to fits your purposes.

      If you have any problem in the process, do not hesitate to post a new question here

      Hope this helps
