Hi all,

I am need to submit transcriptome annotation of Juncus plant to NCBI, for which I have to create asn.1 file. This file can be generated using tbl2asn. When I try doing so, I see the following error.

ubt80:table2scan arslan$ tbl2asn -t template.sbt -i je.fasta -V v
[tbl2asn 25.6] File contains unexpected extra data
[tbl2asn 25.6] Validating je

Top few lines of feature table and fasta seq. are can be seen in the links given. I generated feature table it using GAG - genome annotation generator after validating the annotated gff3 file using genometools.

I believe that there is no problem with tbl2asn installation. Since its running all fine. I would be very grateful for the help!

I'm receiving error "[linux64.tbl2asn] File contains unexpected extra data" as well. This error message is not documented on NCBI. In the source code of tbl2asn ( I can see that this error appears when "FileHasMoreData" is true, but I'm not sure what does it imply: static Boolean FileHasMoreData (FILE *fp) { Pointer dataptr; Uint2 datatype; Boolean rval = FALSE;

   if (fp == NULL) {
3375     return FALSE;
   dataptr = ReadAsnFastaOrFlatFile (fp, &datatype, NULL, TRUE, FALSE, TRUE, FALSE);
   if (dataptr != NULL) {
     rval = TRUE;
     ObjMgrFree (datatype, dataptr);
   return rval;

I hope to see some comments on this old question.
