I have a collection of biological parts and devices in a particular format that basically stores information of the sequence of the elements. My intention is to move to a more standardized data structure with a particular interest in Synthetic Biology. SBOL 3 looks like a good choice, then the question is if there is a way to kind of "import" data from my sequence-based database into SBOL?
For SBOL 2, you can readily import data via the online converter tool at https://converter.sbolstandard.org/ The converter basically just wraps the conversion function found in the SBOL libraries, so if you're coding, you can do the conversion directly from the libraries.
An anecdote on the difficulty level: I recently started using an SBOL3-->SBOL2-->GenBank conversion using pySBOL3 and pySBOL3. It took a couple of hours to setup the pipeline, and isn't perfect, but it's pretty doable (and ought to be generalized for others to use as well at some point). The other way would be easier, since GenBank contents are pretty simple.
