I think the easiest thing for you to do is to contact
net-info at ncbi.nlm.nih.gov
they can either do the search for you :-) or they can give you info about
the Nentrez program.
This is available by anonymous FTP at 184.108.40.206 (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov) and is
an internet version of the CD-rom databases. I tried saving you a list of
articles from one of these searches but it started to save the sequences
(DNA and PROT) so I aborted when it got to 750K.!!!!
Contact them, and do a search!!!
Excellent software, still bugs/things that could be better though.
If you want more details e-mail me: leach at mbcrr.harvard.edu
or get the NCBI newsletter volume 2 issue 2 (from info at ncbi.nlm.nih.gov)
