5.2.2 Selecting part of a sequence

Within the sequence viewer, there are several ways to select part of a sequence, or select a subset of sequences from a list, alignment or assembly:

Keyboard shortcuts for selection of sequences:

Go to position

To jump to a particular base in a sequence you can use PIC Go to base under the Edit menu (for amino acid sequences, this appears as Go to Residue). This allows for the instant navigation to a particular nucleotide or amino acid coordinate for any sequence in the current document selection. It also allows the selection of a particular region of sequence, either for individual sequences or across sequence lists and alignments, or the selection of particular sequences out of a sequence list. Formatting examples are given in the setup dialog. Go to Position also appears next to the sequence viewer when in genome view (see section 5.2.4 )
