I have a somewhat novice question. Is there a paper or place (book, web
site, etc.) that describes all of the generally used formats? I know
FASTA and can pick the parts out of a genbank file that I need. But
there seems to be a lot of other formats out there (GCG, EMBL, and
others) and I really don't know what use they might be or what's in
them. Thanks in advance.
