The in silico cloning process in CLC Genomics Workbench begins with the Restriction Based Cloning tool:
Molecular Biology Tools () | Cloning ()| Restriction Based Cloning ()
This will open a dialog where you can select both the sequences containing the fragments you want to clone, as well as the one to be used as vector (figure 21.18).
CLC Genomics Workbench will now create a sequence list of the selected fragments and vector sequences. For cloning work, open the sequence list and switch to the Cloning Editor () at the bottom of the view (figure 21.19).
If you later in the process need additional sequences, right-click anywhere on the empty white area of the view and choose to "Add Sequences".
