Double-clicking a row will open the BLAST result for this query sequence, allowing more detailed investigation of the result. You can also select one or more rows and click the Open BLAST Output button at the bottom of the view. Consensus sequence can be extracted by clicking the Extract Consensus button at the bottom. Clicking the Open Query Sequence will open a sequence list with the selected query sequences. This can be useful in work flows where BLAST is used as a filtering mechanism where you can filter the table to include e.g. sequences that have a certain top hit and then extract those.

In the overview table, the following information is shown:

If you wish to save some of the BLAST results as individual elements in the Navigation Area, open them and click Save As in the File menu.
