Hej Jack Zhu and Sean Davis!
I wanted to retrieve data that have recently been submitted (end of august) to the SRA, but I cannot do it using SRAdb, as the database I can fetch using getSRAdbFile() is "outdated", dating from early august: c("schema version", "creation timestamp")c("1.0", "2016-08-06 00:25:18") It corresponds to this file: 'https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/51653511/SRAmetadb.sqlite.gz'
I could not find the info, but I suppose updating this db is something you do manually? How often do you do it? And is it something you could share the code to, so that end-user could do it too?
Thanks in advance for your answer,
