A publication I was reading provided two ranges of GenBank accession numbers for supplementary data.
The ESTs from GR_Ea and GR_Eb were deposited in GenBank under accession nos. CO069431–CO100583 and CO100584–CO132899.]
If I search by a single accession number in GenBank I have no problem pulling up a record, but I obviously don't want to do this for thousands of EST records. Is there a way that I can provide a range of accession numbers (as above) and retrieve all these records simultaneously from GenBank? I am using GenBank's web interface right now, but I also wouldn't mind knowing how to do this on the command line as well.
Yet another pearl from the sea of NCBI...
cool ! I didn't known this 'accn' field !

Great. This is what I was looking for. The filters are powerful...now I just need a reason to take the time to learn them!
