Hi! What's the best, straightforward way to map from NCBI taxonomy IDs (eg. 12242) to viral hosts? Alternatively Uniprot Proteome IDs to viral hosts?
I don't know if it would be possible to make the connection to find the host but you can find out the name of the virus from taxID (or vice versa).
$ esearch -db taxonomy -query "tobacco mosaic virus" | esummary | xtract -pattern DocumentSummary -tab "\t" -element TaxId,ScientificName
12242 Tobacco mosaic virus
$ efetch -db taxonomy -id "12242"
1. Tobacco mosaic virus
I have names for my species, just trying to get hosts as well.
