biomartr: Genomic Data Retrieval
Version 0.5.1

Perform metagenomic data retrieval and functional annotation retrieval. In detail, this package aims to provide users with a standardized way to automate genome, proteome, coding sequence ('CDS'), 'GFF', and metagenome retrieval from 'NCBI' and 'ENSEMBL' databases. Furthermore, an interface to the 'BioMart' database (Smedley et al. (2009) ) allows users to retrieve functional annotation for genomic loci. Users can download entire databases such as 'NCBI RefSeq' (Pruitt et al. (2007) ), 'NCBI nr', 'NCBI nt' and 'NCBI Genbank' (Benson et al. (2013) ) as well as 'ENSEMBL' and 'ENSEMBLGENOMES' with only one command.
