gff2bed(feature, name_field=None)

Converts a GFF feature into a BED6 feature. By default, the name of the new BED will be, but if name_field is provided then the name of the new BED will be feature.attrs[name_field].

name_field can also be an integer to index into the fields of the object, so if you want the BED name to be the GFF featuretype, then you can use name_field=2.

If the specified field does not exist, then “.” will be used for the name.
