Hello guys, I'm trying to download several genomes from ncbi using Entrez module in Biopython. I'm using obviously an API key, but it seems that after 20 records, download it's stopped. It's just me? I don't see explicit limit in Entrez documentation. I'm expecting around 773 records, as obtained with this key in NCBI assembly.
Escherichia[organism] AND complete+genome
If answer would be yes to the first question, how can I implement some nice workaround to timeout?
As requested, here's the query used ..
Entrez.email = "my@email" Entrez.api_key = "mykey" search_term = "Escherichia[organism] AND complete+genome[title]" handle = Entrez.esearch(db="nucleotide", term=search_term) genome_ids = Entrez.read(handle)['IdList']
I'm currently see just an IdList made by 20 records.
