If I look at this record in GenBank I see about 6k genes: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/nuccore/CM000760?report=gbwithparts

I'd really like to be able to dump those genes in GFF3 format, but I'm guessing I can't do that in a single step, so...

  1. How to dump all genes from a GenBank record in 'whatever' format?
  2. How to convert 'whatever' format to GFF3?

Hello Dan!

It appears that your post has been cross-posted to another site: https://bioinformatics.stackexchange.com/questions/853

This is typically not recommended as it runs the risk of annoying people in both communities.

Please limit cross-posting both here and on bioinformatics.stackexchange.com, it's a bit of a waste for people to reply in parallel at both places.

Ha, turns out you can just grab the GFF3 from the NCBI's FTP site!
