Internally this function loads the the overview.txt file from NCBI
and creates a directory '_ncbi_downloads' in the
folder to store the overview.txt file for future processing. In case the

accessible within the workspace, no download process will be performed again.
Please note that the ftp:// connection relies on the NCBI or ENSEMBL server and cannot be accurately accessed via a proxy.
