Circular DNA

A sequence can be shown as a circular molecule:

        select a sequence in the Navigation Area | Show in the Toolbar | As Circular (Image circular)

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

This will open a view of the molecule similar to the one in figure 10.4.

Figure 10.4: 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:
