If you submit a protein sequence to FASTA at genbank.bio.net and use the
translated databases, that is in effect a TFastA, though not every nucleotide
sequence has be translated:
GenPept/all Translated protein reading frames from
the latest GenBank release. Note that
GenPept contains translations only of
reading frames that are explicitly
mentioned in the GenBank sequence entry
GenPept/new Translated protein reading frames from
GenBank daily updates (translated from
