  • efetch problem

    Using VBA I download fasta file with
    http://eutils.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entre...re&id=21614549, ..................&rettype=fasta

    Problem in that file is not downloaded when I use very long Url with many IDs. Error is "Request URL too large".

    On http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/batchentrez I have no problem with downloading.

    See the quote from E-utilities help page below. Are you submitting more than 200 UID?

    UID list. Either a single UID or a comma-delimited list of UIDs may be provided. All of the UIDs must be from the database specified by db. There is no set maximum for the number of UIDs that can be passed to EFetch, but if more than about 200 UIDs are to be provided, the request should be made using the HTTP POST method.

      Yes, I downloaded more than 200 UIDs and I used HTTP POST method.
      Problem not in number of UIDs because I have downloaded for example 500 UIDs but in URL length.

        According to Wikipedia (link) the limit is

        The limit is configurable on Apache2 using the LimitRequestBody directive, which specifies the number of bytes from 0 (meaning unlimited) to 2147483647 (2 GB) that are allowed in a request body.
        So if you are running into "request URL too large" then you are likely hitting the limit set by NCBI. I would think that you will have to run multiple queries staying under that limit.

          Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
          by seqadmin


          The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

          Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
          by seqadmin




          The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...
