How to get genomes related to published paper in NCBI

I'm currently trying to computerize a search which is: 1) get all genomes on NCBI related to certain organism + refseq and so on. i'm doing that with Biopython and Entrez

query = "Microbacterium[Organism] AND latest_refseq[filter] NOT partial[filter]"
handle = Entrez.esearch(term=query, db="Assembly", retmax=600)
ids =["IdList"]

here : 513 genomes

2) second part would be to add another filter to get only the assemblies linked to a published paper but i have no idea how i could to that. Unfortunatly i can't see some usefull tags related to publication for assembly db in biopython but maybe others ways exist? i'm open to every way not just python/biopython thanks !

yeah thanks bu i don't need help for the first part, i know how to dl my genomes but not how to add informations about the fact that every genome is related to a published paper or not

Using EntrezDirect. It may not always work for all accessions. In your case only 41 results from original search seem to be linked to a paper.

$ esearch -db assembly -query "Microbacterium[Organism] AND latest_refseq[filter] NOT partial[filter]" |  elink -target pubmed | esummary | xtract -pattern DocumentSummary -element Id,Title,Value

Note: While I show the example as one step search you may need to do this in two steps if you want to keep track of accession numbers and ones that actually produce a result. Piping in EntrezDirect does not keep track of the query across the pipes so you will need to do this yourself.
