Biomedical Genomics Workbench provides direct access to web-based search in various databases and on the Internet using your computer's default browser. You can look up a sequence in the databases of NCBI and UniProt, search for a sequence on the Internet using Google and search for Pubmed references at NCBI. This is useful for quickly obtaining updated and additional information about a sequence.
The procedure for searching is identical for all four search options (see also figure 3.40):
Open a sequence or a sequence list | Right-click the name of the sequence | Web Info () | select the desired search function
This will open your computer's default browser searching for the sequence that you selected.
