tbl2asn - prepare a GenBank submission using an ASCII feature table


See Also


tbl2asn [-] [-A str] [-C str] [-D filename] [-E] [-F str] [-G str] [-H str] [-K] [-L] [-O] [-P] [-Q] [-R] [-S] [-T] [-U] [-V str] [-W] [-X str] [-Y filename] [-Z filename] [-a str] [-b] [-c str] [-f filename] [-g] [-h] [-i filename] [-j str] [-k str] [-n str] [-o filename] [-p str] [-q] [-r str] [-s] [-t filename] [-u] [-v] [-x str] [-y str] [-z]


tbl2asn reads a template along with sequence and table files, and outputs ASN.1 for submission to GenBank. Thus, the submitter does not need to read each set of table and sequence files into Sequin. Furthermore, the template file can contain the organism and submitter information common to all records, obviating the need to input these data for each sequence/table pair.
