Can any software download tuberculosis whole genome short-reads from the web using a given name of sample or somehow?
Did you check NCBI - SRA. Type Tuberculosis in search tab and you will get the results like this
I could find http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sra/?term=tuberculosis+belarus, thank you. How to get all short-reads from Belarus tub samples automatically or somehow?
First hit of the link in my previous comment.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sra/ERX1055122[accn] -> Organism - Mycobacterium tuberculosis
This is an excellent tutorial by Obi Griffith, that helps you in downloading data from SRA. Have a look at it. But you may get problems in installing SRA toolkit depending on your OS, but I assure you, with little time you can overcome.
