Linux one-liners converting GFF3 to FASTA files of contigs
Despite the popularity of GFF3 format for genome annotations, to my knowledge there is no published tools for extracting DNA sequences of contigs from the GFF3 files and store them in a multi-FASTA file. EMBOSS
seqret is only able to pull out the last contig from the GFF3 file, whereas other tools aim to extract the DNA sequence per feature. Therefore, I develop two Linux one-liners in this post for extract contig sequences from a GFF3 file and transfer them to a FASTA file.
