I have list of genes and need to get certain fields of information about them from GeneCards, which is very tedious job manually. Is it possible to access GeneCards via XML so that I can parse it and get the certain fields via script? I am already using xml parsing for NCBI and UniProt, however couldn't find any information for GeneCards on the net, except in GeneCards version log where they say they it can be displayed via xml.
httrwill GET you going with Genecards:
GeneCards uses information from other databases (e.g. STRING, Uniprot,...) so depending on the type of information you want to get from GeneCards it might be possible and more convenient to directly access the 'source' of the data.
