In the context of my PhD project, I'm working with publicly available scRNA-seq datasets. I need to download SRA files from NCBI in order to extract the fastq files and process them. I use the wget command to do this:
However, whenever I try to dowload a file specifically from NCBI it is rejected with a 403 forbidden error.
