The Sequences panel, represented by a circular sequence icon, lets you choose which sequence to use when performing an agarose gel simulation.
This panel is enabled only after you use the File > New Agarose Gel command. Sequences that were open in the Document window or selected in a Project window prior to using this command will appear in the panel.
If no sequences were open, the panel will appear empty.
Use any of the following methods. Note that multiple sequences can be added to the panel, though only one can be used for the simulation.
- Click the plus sign in the bottom left of the panel. Select the file of interest and press Open.
- Select a sequence and choose File > Import (Sequences to Project). Select the file of interest and press Open.
- Right-click anywhere in the panel and choose Import (Sequences to Project). Select the file of interest and press Open.
- Drag and drop a file from your file explorer onto the panel.
Use any of the following methods:
- Select a sequence by clicking on its name, then press the minus sign in the lower left of the panel. When prompted to confirm, click OK.
- Select a sequence by clicking on its name, then choose Edit > Cut.
- Right-click on the sequence and choose Cut or Delete.
Do any of the following:
- Drag a sequence from the Sequences panel and drop it in a lane in the Gel Simulation view.
- Select a lane in the Gel Simulation view, then put a checkmark next to a sequence in the Sequences panel.
- Select an empty lane in the Gel Simulation view, then add a sequence to the Sequences panel, as above. The first sequence added will be applied to the selected lane.
In each case, the sequence is applied in linear fashion to the gel in the Gel Simulation view, running the full width of the gel. If you select a different sequence, the previous sequence will become deselected.
