I need to download sequences randomly from any genome database, and also 
download its annotation.  I belive downloading the GenBank format will do 
that for me most of the times.  I had the following strategy in mind

Select a chromosome randomly
	for each chromosome
		select a contig randomly
			in each contig select a sequence (either begining or the end and calculate  
			the remaining coordinate
			download the sequence

But i am really not a good coder!! I have written a longish program for for 
the first 2 loops, but i am still trying to figure out a way to code for the 
3rd nested loops

all the help is highly solicitated
