Adding new genome assemblies


I would like to add to my GenomeBrowse a new assembly, including the fasta reference and matching annotations.

The genome of interest:

Staphylococcus aureus RF122

I have downloaded the fasta reference file and matching gff3 annotation file, but when Genomebrowse doesn't seem to handle gff3 files. In this respect, I attempted to convert the gff3 file to gtf format using cufflinks' gffread, but when I attempt to convert the files together, I get a "The fields or type of this source does not match...".

Is there a simple way to get around this or import a genome (including the annotation data) directly from ensembl?
