Circular DNA

A sequence can be shown as a circular molecule:

        Select a sequence in the Navigation Area and right-click on the file name | Hold the mouse over "Show" to enable a list of options | Select "Circular View" (Image element_info_16_n_p)

   or  If the sequence is already open | Click "Show Circular View" (Image circular_16_n_p) at the lower left part of the view

This will open a view of the molecule similar to the one in figure 11.4.

Figure 11.4: A molecule shown in a circular view.

This view of the sequence shares some of the properties of the linear view of sequences as described in View Sequence, but there are some differences. The similarities and differences are listed below:
