I am pretty new to this field and I found that RefSeq IDs and EMBL (Genbank) IDs are mixed sometimes.
When I looked this up at NCBI I found: "RefSeq sequences are derived from GenBank and provide non-redundant curated data representing our current knowledge of known genes."
But why is that? Why not providing either RefSeq or Genbank IDs?
I am working with RefSeqs in my workflow. Can I map all Genbank IDs to RefSeqs and go on?
Thank you very much!
