Available in the ‘Sequence’ window, this allows to undo the last action (deletion,
insertion, upper/lowercase). 5 levels of undo are available.
• Open [C
Redo and action that has just been undone. Similarly, 5 levels of redo are available.
• Select all [C
Whenever the active field is containing text, this command allows to select all this text.
• Cut [C
Delete the selected text and store it in the clipboard.
• Copy [C
Copy the selected text and store it in the clipboard. When copied from a sequence
window, the text is formatted as 80 nucleotide-long lines before storing.
• Copy as Fasta [C
Available in the ‘Sequence’ window this command allows to copy the portion of the
sequence selected and store it in the clipboard after formatting in Fasta format (Header
starting with a ‘>’ and 80-nucleotide-long lines).
• Paste [C
Paste the text contained in the clipboard at the insertion point. Note that in sequence
fields, non-ACGT letters are filtered out. In case non-ACGT letters are filtered out, a
message window will pop-up to indicate how many letters were filtered out. Direct
parsing of certain format is provided by the Paste function : if the sequence in the
clipboard is in a FASTA format, then the first line starting by a ‘>’ is pasted in the
comment field and the rest of the sequence is pasted in the sequence field. In case the
sequence in the clipboard is a complete HTML page copied from a NCBI Genbank page
(using any Web browser) then a more complex parsing is executed where some comment
information are extracted from the page and pasted in the comment field while the
sequenceis directly extracted and pasted in the sequence field (see examples).
• Find [C
Available in ‘Sequence’’ windows, this command opens the find window.
• Find ORF [C
Available in ‘Sequence’ windows, this commands find the next Open Reading Frame,
i.e., a piece of sequence starting with an ‘ATG’ and ending with an in-frame STOP
codons (TAA, TAG or TGA).
