I was trying to create a database from NCBI Nucleotide bank. I did a query which gave me 1124 results. From each single result I was wanting to obtain only the items realted to Accesion Country and isolation.

Here is what I get from the NCBI

LOCUS MH973850 410 bp DNA linear PLN 03-MAR-2019 DEFINITION Cryptococcus neoformans isolate OA2 internal transcribed spacer 1, partial sequence; 5.8S ribosomal RNA gene, complete sequence; and internal transcribed spacer 2, partial sequence.

What I want to obtain from the whole data

VERSIONMH973850.1 JOURNAL Submitted (24-SEP-2018) Biology, Ege University, Genclik Caddesi, Izmir 35040,Turkiye FEATURES Location/Qualifiers source 1..410 /organism="Cryptococcus neoformans" /mol_type="genomic DNA" /isolate="OA2" /isolation_source="Soil sample" /db_xref="taxon:5207" misc_RNA <1..>410 /note="contains internal transcribed spacer 1, 5.8S ribosomal RNA, and internal transcribed spacer 2"

Which is the best way to accomplish this?

Here's a python3 code snippet that users the biopython library:

from Bio import Entrez

Entrez.email = 'test@test.com'
handle = Entrez.esearch(db="nucleotide", term="Cryptococcus neoformans isolate OA2 internal transcribed spacer 1") # generates URL
record = Entrez.read(handle) # requests entity ids
id_list = record.get('IdList',None)

for x in id_list:
    handle = Entrez.efetch(db="nucleotide", id=x, retmode="xml") # makes query for each ID, returns XML format

    record = Entrez.read(handle) # parses XML format
    # print (record[0]) # print entire result (python dict)

    # this is parsing some fields you need
    print ('accession:',record[0].get('GBSeq_primary-accession',None))
    for item in record[0].get('GBSeq_feature-table',None)[0].get('GBFeature_quals',None):
        for k in item.keys():
            print (k, ':',item.get(k))

prints

accession: MH973850
GBQualifier_name : organism
GBQualifier_value : Cryptococcus neoformans
GBQualifier_name : mol_type
GBQualifier_value : genomic DNA
GBQualifier_name : isolate
GBQualifier_value : OA2
GBQualifier_name : isolation_source
GBQualifier_value : Soil sample
GBQualifier_name : db_xref
GBQualifier_value : taxon:5207

You'll have to finish the code yourself to get the exact keys/values you need. I didn't see any "country" field, except the journal publication locale.

If you don't use the code, at least use the retmode='XML' so you can easily parse the response.
