Assignment for 20th
Xiaodi's discussion page has most of the interesting stuff... I found code from the biopython cookbook which retrieves a BLAST ID, and then based on http://biopython.org/DIST/docs/api/public/Bio.Blast.Record-module.html one can get interesting information. For a CDS, the GI# can be fed into dbSNP which will then find the SNP in question... if not a CDS though the chromosome position doesn't come up for the hit in any useable form...
