Hi vijaya,

LWP has good documentation, if you read it you should get the basics of how to use it's interface. From there, if you know some perl, you should be able to write some code to get started.

I have almost no knowledge of the NCBI database, but I do know there is something called BLAST that is used to search NCBI data:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/blast/Blast.cgi

Maybe that is where you should start if you have not already.

Use a search engine and search for "LWP tutorial" and you should find something. I have no specific recommendations. You can also read the LWP documentation on CPAN.

Hi Vijaya,
I don't know if you've already found this out, but there's a nice little script @ http://eutils.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query/static/eutils_help.html#DemonstrationPrograms
under the sub-heading "Demonstration Programs" that uses LWP::Simple module.
Best wishes,
