I want to make a seach using Biopython's Entrez API, i have the following code:
handle = Entrez.esearch(db='pubmed', sort='relevance', retmax='20', retmode='xml', term=name+" AND "+nombre)
That works fine, but if I try to add a filter, such as "has abstract"[FILT] like this:
term=name+" AND "+nombre+" AND has abstract"[FILT])
I get an error.
The syntax seems "fine" both pubmed's and python's. But maybe I'm awfully wrong, can you help? Thanks!!
Just in case (running python):
Python 2.7.15 |Anaconda, Inc.| (default, May 1 2018, 23:32:55) [GCC 7.2.0] on linux2 Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>> from Bio import Entrez >>> Entrez.email = 'firstname.lastname@example.org' >>> handle = Entrez.einfo(db="pubmed") >>> record = Entrez.read(handle) >>> record["DbInfo"].keys() [u'Count', u'LastUpdate', u'MenuName', u'Description', u'LinkList', u'DbBuild', u'FieldList', u'DbName'] >>> for field in record["DbInfo"]["FieldList"]: ... print("%(Name)s, %(FullName)s, %(Description)s" % field) ... ALL, All Fields, All terms from all searchable fields UID, UID, Unique number assigned to publication FILT, Filter, Limits the records . . .
so FILT looks like the appropriate Key, right?
