[EMBOSS] A question about CON entries

	Dear friends,

As you know, the databanks EMBL, GenBank and RefSeq contain entries that do not 
contain the sequence itself, but instead "join" information about how to compose 
the sequence using ranges from other sequences. When the databank has been 
installed under EMBOSS the sequence is not available, since EMBOSS wil give a 
"Warning: Sequence has zero length". Do you think that EMBOSS should be able to 
handle such cases ? And in the meantime, do you know about tools that can, given 
as input the "CON" sequence and a databank with sequences, assemble on-the-fly 
the sequence ?

	Guy Bottu,
