Using split views to see details of the circular molecule

In order to see the nucleotides of a circular molecule you can open a new view displaying a circular view of the molecule:

        Press and hold the Ctrl button (Image command_key_web on Mac) | click Show Sequence (Image sequence) at the bottom of the view

This will open a linear view of the sequence below the circular view. When you zoom in on the linear view you can see the residues as shown in figure 9.8.

Figure 9.8: Two views showing the same sequence. The bottom view is zoomed in.

Note! If you make a selection in one of the views, the other view will also make the corresponding selection, providing an easy way for you to focus on the same region in both views.
