Hi Jun

yes, I'm using EUtilities. Still, I didn't found that straightforward
unless you already have the accession or ID. This script makes the
search as if you were on the website (using eutilities), gets all info
from the genes including gene products and then downloads those as
well (again, using the BioPerl modules).
