Extract Annotations

The Extract annotations tool makes it very easy to extract parts of a sequence (or several sequences) based on its annotations. In just a few steps, it becomes possible to:

The output is a sequence list that contains sequences carrying the annotation specified (including the flanking regions, if this option was selected).

To extract annotations from a sequence, go to:

        Toolbox | General Sequence Analysis (Image generalsequenceanalyses)| Extract Annotations (Image extract_annotations)

This opens the dialog shown in figure 15.1 that allows specification of which sequence to extract annotations from.

Figure 15.1: Select one or more sequences to extract annotations from.

Click Next. At the top of the dialog shown in figure 15.2 you can specify which annotations to use:

The sequence of interest can be extracted with flanking sequences:

The sequences that are created can be named after the annotation name, type etc:
