am trying to parsing the xml(?) from the Entrez's dbSNP database
from Bio import Entrez Entrez.email="firstname.lastname@example.org" handle=Entrez.efetch(db="snp", id="121434622",) cont=handle.read()
I see there some poster related to how to parse the file from Entrez:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/11322250/biopython-class-instance-output-from-entrez-read-i-dont-know-how-to-manipula But strange enough(?) the cont.type i got is a str not a class? I saw a post in 2009 said it may be a bug at NCBI for the dbSNP, but i am not sure it is still true after 4 yrs. Any efficient way i should use to parse the information from dbSNP?
Thanks a lot!
