[Bioperl-l] Fwd: FW: parser for GeneSeqer

Hi Rob,

For what it's worth, I wrote a fair amount of code for parsing GeneSeqer output.
 You may want to have a look here: http://www.public.iastate.edu/~mespar1/gthxml/

There is a perl script--GSQ2XML.pl--to convert GeneSeqer plain text output into
an XML format also used by the GenomeThreader spliced alignment program, whose
schema is specified in a RELAX NG document, GenomeThreader.rng.txt.  The file
0README in the above directory will give you an overview of what tools I've made
available.  Hope you find it useful!
