Chromosome Location To Features

Via Entrez Map Viewer

Looks like we can call the map viewer to extract what we want (and probably download it to get what we need if we need to checkpoint it…)

URLs constructed like so, where you replace chromosome_number, range_start and range_end with the appropriate values:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/projects/mapview/maps.cgi?TAXID=9606&CHR=chromosome_number&MAPS=genes[range_start%3Arange_end]&CMD=TXT

or to get a plain text file output:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/projects/mapview/map_downld.cgi?taxid=9606&map=genes&chr=chromosome_number&from=range_start&to=range_end

More about this can be found in the documentation
