All files are text files, compressed using the linux/unix program gzip, use gunzip, to extract, zcat to write the content without saving it to a file.

The following are conventions, which a lot of people, not all, follow:

  • fna = FastA format file containing Nucleotide sequence (DNA)
  • gbff = Genbank Genome file containing genome sequence and annotation
  • gff = general feature format containing genomic regions, the "genes, transcripts, etc"
  • faa = FastA format file containing Amino-acid sequence (Protein, peptide)
  • gpff = Genbank Protein file containing protein sequence and annotation

See for more explanation.
