Assuming you mean GCG sequence files (not a GCG sequence database):
EMBOSS can convert many sequence formats, including Genbank and GCG,
using the program "seqret".
Just one warning ... you need the -ossingle option on the command line
to write each sequence to a separate file (or process one Genbank
sequence at a time if they are already in separate files). EMBOSS can
read GCG files with more than one sequence but other applications may
assume only one sequence per file.
