Query genes beyond species, at levels of genus, family,…,phylum

In a typical MyGene.info query, you can query genes for one or multiple species by providing a "species" parameter: http://mygene.info/v2/query?q=cdk2&species=human http://mygene.info/v2/query?q=cdk2&species=9606,10090 MyGene.info now allows you to query genes at the level beyond species, that is, you can now query for matching genes for any given genus, family, or even phylum from the taxonomy...
