We are working on adding sequence features to EMBOSS, which will
include extracting CDS sequences from the EMBL/Genbank feature table
and from GFF (Gene-finding features) files.

This will take a little while yet before release but coding is well
under way. EMBOSS will also be able to save ananlysis results in these
formats, so other tools that can use them will be of interest to us.
