Databases searches can be automated using an Agent, allowing you to continuously receive the latest information on genomes, sequences, and protein structures. Each agent is a user-deﬁned, automated search. You can instruct an agent to search any Geneious accessible database at regular intervals (e.g. weekly). This simple but powerful feature ensures that you never miss that critical article or DNA sequence. To manage agents go to View → Agents. An agent has to be set up before it can be used.
