cDNA as Subseq of genomic DNA: intron-exon jcns

Could someone suggest how to handle the following in a .ace file?

I have a cDNA that overlaps an exon-intron boundary of a genomic
sequence, and wish to encode the cDNA as a Subsequence of the

How do I handle the cDNA coordinates to get proper graphic display
of the sequences?


Sequence : "Genomic_Seq"
DNA      "Genomic_Seq" 1000
Subsequence      "cDNA_Seq" ??? ???
exon     200 300 "" Location "200..300"
exon     450 800 "" Location "450..800"
Intron   301 449 "" Location "301..449"

Sequence : "cDNA_Seq"
DNA      "cDNA_Seq" 500

The 500 bp of the cDNA overlap the genomic DNA from
100-300 and from 450-750 (intro-exon junction in the
cDNA is between nucs 200 and 201)

I appreciate any suggestions ...
