Does anyone know if it is possible to specify which assembly to use when constructing a query for Entrez ?
For example, if I do such a query with EDirect:
esearch -db gene -query "brca1 [ALL]human[ORGN]" -sort "relevance" | \ efetch -format docsum | \ xtract -pattern DocumentSummary -element Name MapLocation Description OtherAliases Id \ -block GenomicInfo -element ChrLoc ChrAccVer ChrStart ChrStop
the GenomicInfo that I get seems to be according to the GRCh38 assembly. The application that I'm developing needs to use the GRCh37 assembly, however.
Any help is much appreciated.
