Hi…I am just starting out with exploring Entrez Eutils using Biopython. What I need to do is find the amino acid change for a list of rsIDs of missense SNPs. I cannot figure out how to do that. I guess the answer would lie in the xml generated by this query:
handle = Entrez.efetch(db="snp", id="6046", retmode="xml")
But when I try
record = Entrez.read(handle)
It gives me an error like: The Bio.Entrez parser cannot handle XML data that make use of XML namespaces.
I don’t know why this is happening. Maybe I am missing something obvious here…
Is it even possible to get my required information using eutils? If not, can you suggest any other means (except doing it manually for every SNP)?
Thanks in advance.
