eutils 0.0.8dev-9d2a4b1ac188

Structured Python interface to NCBI E-Utilities.

Package Documentation

Latest Version: 0.3.2

eutils is a Python package that facilitates the use of the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) Eutilities interface. It is conceptually similar to facilities in Biopython and PyCogent, but it differs from those in a few important ways. Features:

  • Eutils, and nothing else. This reduces the number of dependencies.
  • Caching and throttling are built-in. (NCBI bans excessive use.)
  • Aims to provide parsers for all major data types.

Status: eutils is in early development. PubMed, Gene, RefSeq (nucleotide), and dbSNP data are well-represented; others are not represented at all.
