Short URL:
Description:dbiflat indexes a flat file database of one or more files, and builds EMBL CD-ROM format index files. This format is used by the software on the EMBL database CD-ROM distribution and by the Staden package in addition to EMBOSS, and appears to be the most generally used and publicly available index file format for these databases. A flat file database is a database in one of the native formats: EMBL, Swiss-Prot or GenBank, as distributed by the EBI, NCBI, or DDBJ. (It is called a 'flat' file to distinguish it from the complex relational database formats that this data is held in before being written to files and distributed.)
