Code/Documentation contributions


We would love to have your help in developing rentrez. Bear in mind, rentrez is intended to be a general-purpose wrapper for the Eutils API. Functions that make use of rentrez to perform more specific tasks should be added to existing packages, or form the basis of new ones.
