I am using following code in a perl script to retrieve ScientificName for a taxid. I would also like to retrieve other fields such as species and genus but when I used the get_contents_by_name method for any other item it gives me Can't call method "get_contents_by_name" on an undefined value error.

Any help would be appreciated.

      my $factory = Bio::DB::EUtilities->new(-eutil => 'esummary',
                                                -email => 'mymail@foo.bar',
                                                -db    => 'taxonomy',
                                                -id    => $taxid );
     my ($name)  = $factory->next_DocSum->get_contents_by_name('ScientificName');

    # print "$name\n";
     my ($genus) = $factory->next_DocSum->get_contents_by_name('Genus');
     print "$genus\n";
