My question is relatively similar to How To Programmatically Retrieve A Batch Of Fasta Sequences From For A List Of Uniprot Accession Ids?, in which someone tries to retrieve fasta sequences from Uniprot from a list of Uniprot Protein IDs.
In my case, I also have a list of Uniprot IDs, and I tried the perl script of the example (see link above). Being a complete perl layman, I managed to retrieve the main result table in Excel. However, I would like to add some more columns (i.e. sequences), something possible to do in the web service. Is there an easy way to modify that perl code example in order to specify the columns I want?
A related question: Is it possible to retrieve the same information but using R instead? I found a couple Uniprot-related packages in Bioconductor, but by reading the manuals I don't think they can do the trick...
Thank you very much!
