First post on biostars, though I play around with phylogenies and assembly/annotation from time to time. I'm by no means an expert (and first and foremost an experimental biologist, not a bioinformatician!) but I suspect this is a pretty simple question to which I can't find an easy answer.
Basically, I have a whole library of annotated GFF files that I made a while back, and I now want to extract some operons from the GFF in to their own files, carrying with them their annotations.
I can use the Sanger Centre's Artemis to easily create a genbank of the highlighted DNA sequence, however it only exports the sequence and none of the annotations.
Is there any way to simply take a selected expanse of DNA (in this case an operon) and create it's own fully-fledged genbank with annotations etc. - or - can I take my 'plain' genbank and feed in annotations from an existing one somehow?
