I am trying to do horizontal gene transfer analysis. I want to download the Protist (Protista) sequences from UniProt.
Protists are eukaryotes, and they are a kingdom. Protist is one of the six kingdoms of life. However, I am having some difficulties downloading their sequences from UniProt. I see different Protist taxid in NCBI, such as:
uncultured eukaryotic protist (taxid:1295078) uncultured protist (taxid:1295078) unidentified protist 56059 (taxid:56059) ... ......
Would someone help me to determine how to download the entire set of Protist sequences (the entire Protist kingdom) from UniProt?
Thanks a lot!!
