Annotations are used to describe and visualize features, such as coding regions, restriction sites and repetitive elements, on sequences and alignments. Genbank, geneious and json files are some of the file types that supports annotations. This operation extracts the region of the selected annotation to a new document.
To extract annotations, select sequence(s) containing annotations and select Extract annotations in the Pre-processing tab. You will then need select either Match all of the following or Match any of the following to match the following criteria:
- What to Extract - This allows you to set which part of the sequence to extract (e.g. just the annotated region, or the entire sequence) based on the criteria you have set.
- Intersecting Annotations - This allows you to set what to do with other annotations that don’t match the criteria, but which overlap with the matched region.
- Annotation - Define what annotations to extract by selecting the value of the annotation type or property (qualifier) that you want to extract by.
Note that you can set more than one Annotation criteria by clicking the + button to add an additional row of options.
