Hey all,

I am using a metaproteomic database for the gut microbiome of mice which I found online

Unfortunately, the accession numbers and protein descriptions are not really helpful for taxonomic analyses since they are like this:

S-Fe7_GL0014216    [gene]  locus=scaffold66956_1:1:1053:+ [Lack both ends] codon-table.11

There is no pattern in the accession in terms of taxonomy and the database is too big for my excel.

The owners also included a text file with explanations of each accessions e.g.

S-Fe7_GL0014216    1/1    Clostridiales    order    root|cellular organisms|Bacteria|Firmicutes|Clostridia|Clostridiales    no rank|no rank|superkingdom|phylum|class|order

I am wondering if there is joint command or script to loop through the file and replace the matching accession with the actual species description?

Thanks in advance for your help!
