Good idea Brad :)

Now why does a tool search on the public Galaxy instance for GC
not suggest this tool?

Name: geecee
Description: Calculates fractional GC content of nucleic acid sequences

Does this mean the description isn't searched? It would seem like
a sensible idea to me to include that...

Searching for "geecee" works, but unless you're familiar with this
EMBOSS tool no-one will think of that.
