Thank James, Yes - very like XML, but with the subtlety that ASN.1 comes in text and binary favours (which I presume applies to all the variants, although the binary versions may not be as commonly used for the smaller files). Nicola - do you want to make a pull request to galaxy-central defining ASN.1 text and binary formats (which we can then subclass for the NCBI BLAST+ wrappers)? Or should I? I think the mime-type for the base ASN.1 text format should probably be text/plain based on the NCBI usage patterns. I'm not sure what the mime-type for the base ASN.1 binary format should be (but I don't think it should be chemical/ncbi-asn1-binary).
