It has the power to check, fix, pad missing information (features/attributes) of any kind of gtf and gff to create complete, sorted and standardised gff3 format.

The GTF/GFF formats are 9-column text formats used to describe and represent genomic features. The formats have quite evolved since 1997, and despite well-defined specifications existing nowadays they have a great flexibility allowing holding wide variety of information. This flexibility has a drawback aspect, there is an incredible amount of flavour of the formats, that can result in problems when using downstream programs.
