Restriction enzyme lists

Biomedical Genomics Workbench includes all the restriction enzymes available in the REBASE database. If you want to customize the enzyme database for your installation, see Restriction enzymes database configuration. However, when performing restriction site analyses, it is often an advantage to use a customized list of enzymes. In this case, the user can create special lists containing e.g. all enzymes available in the laboratory freezer, all enzymes used to create a given restriction map or all enzymes that are available form the preferred vendor.

In the Example data under Nucleotide->Restriction analysis, there are two enzyme lists: one with the 50 most popular enzymes, and another with all enzymes that are included in the Biomedical Genomics Workbench.

This section describes how you can create an enzyme list, and how you can modify it.
