This dialog to enter a sequence manually can be invoked via File/Enter sequence or Ctrl-N.
Beside the sequence, to be typed or pasted into the large text box, one can enter a title (name) for that sequence, and choose a type.
Types available are:
- Amino acid sequence
- (GenBank) XML
When chosing DNA, amino acids, or primer, all non-sequence characters, like blanks and numbers, are automatically removed.
- Note : A primer has to be given the type "Primer", otherwise it will be added as DNA.
