..i wish it could - SRS can parse the feature table but so far only sequence
ranges can be processed, ie, "123..345" - so from databanks like swissprot,
PIR (yes PIR...) all features can be extracted automatically; the "join" and
"complement" location commands of embl and genbank CANNOT be processed - however
someone is working on it right now ...joins with fragments from different
entries will be supported as well...however one can still try and get CDS's
from the nucleotide databanks - on average >50% will be processed ...depending
on the age and the organism source of the entries
