Eric M.,

I'm looking at the Piggy Bank scrapers at
http://potlach.org/2005/10/scrapers/, I think we want to create an
additional one that uses the results of an NCBI eutils query, the PubMed one
is not well suited for the "Gene Neural related gene data" and "Protein
Neural related protein data" tasks.

I can provide the field-to-field mapping, XML to Uniprot RDF, and I believe
I know what the eutils query is. Shall we proceed with this or did you have
something else in mind?

Brian O.
