This is a fork of the taxonomy repository at Google Code, which makes it possible to create a local database containing the content of the NCBI taxonomy. The database can then be queried for names, ranks, and lineages. The present repository adds the functionality to create a Newick tree from a list of NCBI taxonomy identifiers.

It depends on Michael Kuhn's version of the newick Python library
