[ensembl-dev] Local MySQL install...

Dear all,

I have created a Perl script that automatically retrieves all the databases
(currently just for core) from the ftp.ensembl.org/pub/current_mysql site
directory, extracts them and inserts them into a local MySQL database. I am
doing lots of parallel runs retrieving data and thought it would be both
more time effective for me, as well as limiting the number of connections
made to your MySQL servers.

I am using the Core and Compara APIs and my question is, what databases will
I need to use all the functionality of both the Core and Compara APIs? I
assume just the core databases for Core, but would I need any others, for
example when using the HomologyAdaptor and SytentyAdaptor in Compara?



Kindest regards,
