Is it possible to download all the sequence data of a whole genome shotgun sequencing (WGS) project, using a script and just the master record?
You can directly download from FTP site: https://ftp.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/genomes/
Follow the tutorial given by NCBI: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/genome/doc/ftpfaq/#downloadservice
In this case, you have to download assembly summary file. It contains taxonomy and FTP links of all assemblies. You can simply give a list of FTP links to wget in linux or any download manager for example: IDM or EagleGet.
