Background eggNOG uses seed orthologues which correspond to its own internal database, so for example J421_1876 can be placed in its online search engine here. This will recover the function and species classification. Brief output

Carbohydrate transport and metabolism gluconolactonase activity

.. and lots of associated species. Thats useful information but not very amenable to coded solutions.

Aim I want to replicate this via its API, i.e. to be placed in a pipeline.

Thus eggNOG API is here - but I can't figure out, here's the instructions


Question Does anyone know how to use the API to interrogate using the seed orthologue code?

There are alternatives which involve LOADS of hard drive space (not very attractive).
