To select a genetic code:

  • MegAlign – Use Options > Genetic Codes and choose a code from the list.

  • MegAlign Pro – You can choose an alternate genetic code only when mapping features from one sequence to another using Features > Map Features. In the Options screen, check the box next to Override genetic code, then select the desired code from the drop-down list. See the MegAlign Pro User Guide topic Options screen for details.

    To see feature mapping in action, see the video Copying annotations between genomes.

To edit a genetic code:

  • MegAlign – Use Options > Edit Genetic Code.

  • MegAlign Pro – Not available.
