Hi Peter,

I care about the order for the submission to ncbi. But I guess they
will reformat the file before getting it in their database. It's also
visually better when the translation of the protein comes in the end
of the annotation for the CDS and not before /product, /note ....
Anyway maybe I'll reformat the file in sequin table for a direct
submission to ncbi with sequin.

Thank you.
