I have been unsuccessfully trying to convert databases
formatted in the FASTA format to a GCG Data library. I've
tried using readseq with the -a option and converting it
to a genbank format and then using genbanktogcg to convert
that file to a gcg data library. Although files are made, the fasta
program can not sucessfully use them. The two databases that I have
been having trouble with are the tfdaa (transcription factor
database) and the GCRDb (G-protein coupled receptor database).
Does anyone do this conversion and possibly even add more
descriptive data to the database than comes with the
fasta format?
