I am trying to find some help for command-line download of NCBI datasets. I came across the following: www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK179288/
I wish to download a certain number of nucleotide sequences for which I have the accession numbers. However, I cannot find the correct command to use for a list of such sequences in the above link.
What I am currently using is the following:
epost -db nucleotide -input <Accessions file> | efetch -format fasta > <OUTPUT FASTA file>
Is this the correct way to do this? Are there better ways to accomplish the same thing?
