Can we retrieve metadata (such as date of collection of sequence data, location, etc.) for a batch of 3953 GISAID accessions from the GISAID database? I am not very comfortable with GISAID. I am more comfortable with the NCBI database. Any help would be appreciated.
You can download the full db and and put out anything you want with your favourite scripting language.
To do so, you need to request an account first. Once you log in, scroll down to the bottom of the download options. There are 2 meta-data download options, pick what you need.
