Connect to Genbank

Hi,

Hello, I need to connect to and download all genbank sequences of a genome using a query by string, as is done in-class Bio :: SeqIO; in Perl. Which class should I use?

The parser equivalent in .NET Bio is the Bio.IO.GenBank.GenBankParser class.  It lets you read a GenBank flat file format.  I wasn't aware of any feature in Bio::SeqIO::genbank to actually download sequences from GenBank's database, can you point me at the functionality?

Thanks!
