Dynamic restriction sites

If you open a sequence or a sequence list, you will find a Restriction sites section in the Side Panel. Restriction sites can be shown on the sequence as colored triangles and lines (figure 23.1): check the "Show" option on top of the Restriction sites section, then specify the enzymes that should be displayed.

The color of the restriction enzyme can be changed by clicking the colored box next to the enzyme's name. The name of the enzyme can also be shown next to the restriction site by selecting Show above the list of restriction enzymes.

There is also an option to specify how the Labels should be shown:

Note that in a circular view, the Stacked and Radial options also affect the layout of annotations.

Just above the list of enzymes, three buttons can be used for sorting the list (see figure 23.5).
