Abstract

One of the major challenges in using bioinformatics software is that there are a wide variety of sequence formats, e.g., GenBank, EMBL, and FASTA. It is often the case that a sequence or a set of sequences is in one format but is needed in another. This unit offers a solution to this problem - Readseq. Readseq is a program that can read and write 18 different formats
