Enzyme settings[edit]

Enzyme settings.

Here the gloal enzyme options can be selected. These can be overridden for an individual sequence in the sequence editor, where there is a tab identical to this one.

Option Description
Use global enzyme settings Turn most of the other options on this tab on or off globally
Join enzymes In a DNA map, cuts of isoenzymes can be grouped together instead of displayed individually
Use color coding Restriction enzymes can be shown in a color matching their number of cuts in a given sequence. The three buttons to the right of this option each hold a color choice dialog for single, double, and triple cutters.
Use min/max cutoff Shows only enzymes that cut a minimum/maximum times
Sequence length Shows only enzymes with recognition sequences of the selected lengths
Use enzyme group Uses only enzymes from the selected enzyme group
Show methylation Shows DAM and/or DCM methylation in map and sequence, in red
Show GC contents shows the GC contents in the map
