I have a list of locus tags used in a publication and I would like to match these to the protein accession number. I could write a script to do this by parsing the GenBank pages for the genome, but I was hoping there was a tool out there! For locus tag: SS50377_14631 I tried blastdbcmd:
blastdbcmd -outfmt %a -entry 'SS50377_14631' -db /local/one/databases/nr
and got the following error:
Error: [blastdbcmd] SS50377_14631: OID not found Error: [blastdbcmd] SS50377_14631: OID not found BLAST query/options error: Entry or entries not found in BLAST database Please refer to the BLAST+ user manual.
But this locus tag does work on the genbank webpage to retrieve protein EST43027.1
Thank you for your help!
