When reading in a GenBank file, choose 'Open', rather then 'Import'. Open
reads in the entry, storing some items such as the LOCUS name, DESCRIPTION
strandedness, and topology as separate fields, and retaining the rest of the
annotation intact. All of this information is accessible in the GET INFO
menu. Import filters the GenBank entry  through READSEQ before reading it
in, and READSEQ throws away most of the GenBank annotation lines.
