Hi Mattia,

These packages are actually modular and are intended to be adjustable if 
you need to use other TxDbs.  Please see the main package vignette for 
OrganismDbi for details on how this works.


So basically, as long as you have packages that implement a select 
method, and which are relatable to each to each other via extractable 
foreign keys, you should be able to make a custom package to suit your 
needs pretty easily.
