I'm getting really odd behavior when I user get_Seq_by_id to retrieve
from GenPept. I'm trying to retrieve by name where name is like
'ROA1_HUMAN". When I have a name that starts with a Letter it works
great but for names that start with a number it returns junk. Is there
a work around for this or am I doing something wrong? Can I create a
Bio::DB::GenPept->new( arg to specify search type )?
$sp = Bio::DB::GenPept->new;
# worked $query = 'AAP1_YEAST';
# worked $query = "ROA1_HUMAN";
$query = "2AAA_YEAST"; #doesn't work?
$seq = $sp->get_Seq_by_id($query);
print $seq->desc . "\n";
print $seq->primary_id . "\n";
Heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein A1 (Helix-destabilizing
protein) (Single-strand binding protein) (hnRNP core protein A1).
B.taurus DNA sequence 1 from patent application EP0238993.
It is using 2 as the ID number, How do I escape this?
