I'm using Biopython 1.73 with Python 3.7.2.
Until yesterday, the following code produced BLAST results as intended:
entrquery = '"Arabidopsis thaliana"[organism]' result_handle = NCBIWWW.qblast(program="blastp",database="swissprot", sequence=mainfastafile.read(), entrez_query=entrquery, hitlist_size=1)
However, as of today, I get the following error:
ValueError: Error message from NCBI: Entrez Query: "Arabidopsis thaliana"[organism] is not supported
I tried this with and without quotation marks, changed uppercase and lowercase, added a whitespace, even tried other formats I've seen working previously, like
txid:3702 [ORGN], but nothing works. Does anyone know what might be the source of this problem?
