To download the RefSeq genbank file for a given gene, I usually navigate to NCBI Gene database (e.g. for GH1 gene: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/gene/2688), and then from the gene webpage I click on the "GenBank" link on top-right of the graphical presentation (which leads me here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/nuccore/NC_000017.11?report=genbank&from=63917193&to=63918852&strand=true). To save the genbank file on my computer, I use the "Send to" dropdown list and I select the File and then "Create File". This will save the genebank file on my computer. I can see the URL for the downloaded file as: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sviewer/viewer.cgi?tool=portal&save=file&log$=seqview&db=nuccore&report=genbank&id=568815581&from=63917193&to=63918852&strand=on&conwithfeat=on&basic_feat=on&withparts=on
In my opinion, it will be easy to construct this link and automate the download for those gene with known genomic coordinates (from=63917193&to=63918852). Does anyone know what "id=568815581" in this link refers to? Is it specifying a piece of a chromosome? Where can I find the list of these IDs for human genome?
Thanks in advance for your help. Best. Amir
