I'd tend to be inclined more towards option 1 over option 2 because option 2 pollutes the name field. (Although that's not a huge problem if the '(strand)' is always just before the '/'.)

It's a question of whether to optimize human-readability over machine-readabilitiy: option 2 favors the former over the latter, and option 1 the reverse.

Whichever way you go, I think

would be great.
