I'm trying to use SynChro, a program to analyze synteny. It uses CHROnicle to make 3 input files which it creates from Genbank .dat files or EMBL .embl files. I cannot find either of these files as provided by Genbank or EMBL. However, Genbank provides a .gbff file that seems to be the current "Genbank" flat file format, while EMBL provides a .dat (confusingly) that looks to be similar in format to the .embl. Unfortunately, neither of these work with CHROnicle.
Has anyone managed to get SynChro to work? How did you find/convert the right file types?
