Convert DNA to RNA
CLC Genomics Workbench lets you convert a DNA sequence into RNA, substituting the T residues (Thymine) for U residues (Urasil):
Toolbox | Classical Sequence Analysis () | Nucleotide Analysis ()| Convert DNA to RNA ()
This opens the dialog displayed in figure 14.1:
Figure 14.1: Translating DNA to RNA.
If a sequence was selected before choosing the Toolbox action, this sequence is now listed in the Selected Elements window of the dialog. Use the arrows to add or remove sequences or sequence lists from the selected elements.
Click Next if you wish to adjust how to handle the results. If not, click Finish.
Note! You can select multiple DNA sequences and sequence lists at a time. If the sequence list contains RNA sequences as well, they will not be converted.
