Retrieves isolation sources from NCBI given the set of sequences with specified accession numbers. Both nucleotide and protein accessions are accepted.

Project description

**GetIsolationSources** is a small command line utility that, given fasta files containing GenBank IDs in sequence descriptions, generates a per sequence list of isolation sources and their distribution (i.e. number of sequences per isolation source).

It searches for IDs using regular expressions in accordance with [NCBI specifications](, so the format of description strings does not matter.

To obtain needed information it uses automated Entrez queries, so you need a working Internet connection to perform the analysis. Queries are made in accordance with NCBI load-balance regulations, therefore processing several thousand records may take several minutes or even longer.

It is distributed as a source code supporting python setup tools.

**GetIsolationSources uses [BioPython](** So if you're using source code distribution, the latest version of [BioPython]( should be installed.



**GetIsolationSources** by [**Allis Tauri**]( is licensed under the [MIT]( license.
