Tool request: Get data from Genbank/RefSeq by accession

At the recent ASMCUE meeting, I discussed with Mo Heydarian how it would be useful to have a tool similar to one used to get FASTQ reads from SRA, but to get FASTA genomes from NCBI Genbank or RefSeq by accession.

Mo suggested that I could add an item to a github tracker, but I wasn’t sure which tracker within galaxyproject would be appropriate.

We talked about how this might need to be limited to “small genomes” but it would be very useful to those of us who work on bacteria and bacteriophage.

Hi Jim,
I opened an issue in the Galaxyproject/IUC repo here:

Please feel free to provide background and additional information on the feature request.

Thanks for the great suggestion!
