If i have the Genus & Species how can i use them in python code to get a gene sequence. For example:
How can i use these date to get "Cox1" sequence in python ?
Thanks in advance
You can use this as a base to start!
EFetch: Downloading full records from Entrez
can you explain more if you can ?
> >>> from Bio import Entrez
> >>> Entrez.email = "your email here - best guet a account in Entrez/NCBI " # Always tell NCBI who you are
> >>> handle = Entrez.efetch(db="nucleotide", id="ID for the gene you need", rettype="gb", retmode="text")
> >>> print(handle.read())
EXample of using biopython api to download fasta/genbank files from NCBI
You better get one ncbi account and then use the email you login in.
Need to choose the database "nucleotides" if you need dna/sequence data.
Need a ID for the gene you need data.
Need to choose the type of file you need (ig. genbank)
