I have a program that does the following:
1.) Extracts EMBL sequence name and position of the transcription start from
    EPD based on a filter string specified by the user (e.g. PRI:HS)
2.) Converts the sequence name into GCG format (e.g. EM_PR:HS...)
3.) Calculates a /BEGIN and /END position based on the transcriptional
    start site indicated in the EDP and a shift specified by the user
4.) Composes a GCG-command out of the above together with a user defined string.

   If the sequence name is PRI:AGHBD and position is 235. Then the program
   could write a line like


   and repeat this step for all entries that fit into the filter criteria.
   "$ ASSEMBLE/NOMONITOR/DEFAULT" is the template provided by the user,
   input file and output file are derived from the EDP, /BEGIN and /END are
   calculated according to EPD and a shift entered by the user (here -500 +100).

If there is enough demand I'll post the file with all the 1251 lines.
