Load NCBI taxonomy tree (includes script)

Load NCBI taxonomy tree (includes script)

This example program reads the NCBI taxonomy database (text file format) and reconstructs the whole tree of life with more than 450,000 nodes. Once loaded, the program allows you to look up for the specific subtree of a given taxid, or save the whole tree using the newick format. NCBI data is updated as Sep-2010. You can update these data by downloading the last NCBI taxonomy release from ftp://ftp.ncbi.nih.gov/pub/taxonomy/taxdump.tar.gz and extracting the names.dmp and nodes.dmp files.
