Imported sequences arc converted to the Omiga format The Omiga format includes any additional features and information that was in the original sequence file, such as coding regions, transcription start sites, termination codons, polyadenylation signals, and so on. Upon importing new sequences, many such features may be identified based on primary sequence data alone. However, it is often both useful and timely to have these items already identified. Further, many of the features identified in GenBank sequences, for example, are based not on primary sequence data but rather on experimental data.

The sequence view can be used to edit a sequence by hand. This feature can be used to reflect site-specific mutations introduced into the sequence in the laboratory as well as sequence polymorphisms. The edited sequence can then be used to identify new restriction sites generated by the specific alterations. Editing can also be used to add a large piece of one sequence to another sequence to reflect cloning experiments in the laboratory. Thus, an experiment involving the cloning of an insert isolated from a library 1nto a plasmid vector can be simulated us1ng Omiga, provided the sequence of the vector and the insert arc known.
