Dear users, I do not know whether this is a very simple question but I could not solve by myself... I would like to know if there exists in Bioconductor something like the matlab command "getgenbank". It serves to retrieve sequence information from the GenBank database in a simple way, and to download just the sequences to analyze them. I have seen the GEOquery and seqinr libraries but I could not download some given mitochondrial sequences. Best jm~ _______________________________ J.

Hi, You can use the biomaRt package to do stuff like this. http://www.bioconductor.org/packages/2.2/bioc/html/biomaRt.html Marc J.

Eutils can be used for this. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query/static/eutils_help.html Sean

Just keep in mind that you need to respect the NCBI access limits (only during certain hours, and with a sleep() of some seconds between calls; see the NCBI website for details) or they WILL block access. In other words, be very careful if using this type of command in a loop. Sean >> On Wed, Jul 9, 2008 at 4:16 PM, J.
