Hi All,

I just wanted to draw your attention to a GFF3 validator put up by the NIAID 
BRC program. It checks that the GFF3 file is well formed and that only SO 
terms are used in the feature type column. It doesn't check that parent/child 
relationships follow the spec, but it is a real good start.

The documentation: http://iowg.brcdevel.org/gff3.html
Standalone script: http://iowg.brcdevel.org/gff3validator/
Web-based script:
