What is an EMBL file?
DNA and protein sequence file format used by a variety of DNA sequence programs; contains sequence data, along with information about the sequence, such as the name, type, and description; can store multiple sequences.
EMBL files consist of individual sequence entries. The entries are made up of lines that contain different kinds of information. These lines can be identified by the first two letters of the line, such as "ID" for the sequence name and type, "SQ" for sequence data, and "DE" for the sequence description. The end of each sequence is marked by "//".
