Hi all, I'm retrieving proteins using entrez direct esearch. My search words retrieve many proteins, and I only need the first few results. I could do this with bash, but it takes time to retrieve all the results and I would like to know if there is a way to do it with esearch.
esearch -db protein -query rubisco | efetch -format fasta
doesn't work. I get the efetch error message saying that retmax is an unknown option. Thanks!
it's a param for esearch
Thanks, but I get a similar error message saying that this is not a valid parameter for esearch.
