Hi Hector,

DNATools has an unattended mail-blast function which processes the returned
result and inserts selected parts of it in the headers of the query sequences.
>From such annotated sequences you can display various types of sequence lists,
including specific lines of the headers (e.g. discription lines 1 - 5 which
includes the gi| information). The lists can be saved and probably parsed into a
spreadsheet. Well this was not exactly what you asked for, but may take you a
bit of the way in case there are no better suggestions.



You find DNATools at http://www.crc.dk/phys/dnatools.htm
