Sequence Lists

The Sequence List shows a number of sequences in a tabular format or it can show the sequences together in a normal sequence view.

Having sequences in a sequence list can help organizing sequence data. The sequence list may originate from an NCBI search GenBank Search. Moreover, if a multiple sequence fasta file is imported, it is possible to store the data in a sequences list. A Sequence List can also be generated using a dialog, which is described here:

        select two or more sequences | right-click the elements | New | Sequence List (Image sequencelist)

This action opens a Sequence List dialog:

The dialog allows you to select more sequences to include in the list, or to remove already chosen sequences from the list.

Clicking Finish opens the sequence list. It can be saved by clicking Save (Image save) or by dragging the tab of the view into the Navigation Area.

Opening a Sequence list is done by:

        right-click the sequence list in the Navigation Area | Show (Image show) | Graphical Sequence List (Image sequencelistgraphicalviewer) OR Table (Image table)

The two different views of the same sequence list are shown in split screen in figure 10.16.

Figure 10.16: A sequence list containing multiple sequences can be viewed in either a table or in a graphical sequence list. The graphical view is useful for viewing annotations and the sequence itself, while the table view provides other information like sequence lengths, and the number of sequences in the list (number of Rows reported).
