It appears that AWS and GCP hosts SRA data and it's beneficial to grab the data from that source when running on GCP for example.

Given an SRR accession like SRR1929796 https://trace.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Traces/sra/?run=SRR1929796

Is there a metadata API / source that can tell me which google cloud bucket to retrieve the data from like they show on the website?


It also sounds like fastq-dump and fasterq-dump can be configured with Google Cloud credentials to download that for me.

I'm just wondering is there a way to determine the google cloud storage bucket path it's in gs://sra-pub-crun-4?
