The Feature Library Manager is a browser for the over 150 entries in SeqBuilder Pro’s built-in plasmid Feature Library, and allows you to add your own features to the database. This window also lets you specify the appearance of features in the Annotation Results window.

The tools at the top of the window control aspects of how the Sequence view, and sometimes the Linear view, are displayed or formatted in this window. The selected formatting will also be used for any auto-annotations that originate from the Annotation Results window. Use of these tools is described in Specify the appearance of features in the Feature Library Manager and the Annotation Results window.

The top pane in the main portion of the window shows the Sequence view for the selected feature. The display of cut sites, sequence(s), translations, rulers and features in this section depends on choices made using the tools at the top of the window. When multiple features are selected from the Feature list (see below), sequences and translations in this view are displayed as a series of n’s, and no cut sites can be displayed.

The middle pane of the Feature Library Manager displays the Linear view for the selected plasmid feature. The display of cut sites and features in this section depends on choices made using the tools at the top of the window. When multiple features are selected from the Feature list (see below), no cut sites can be displayed in this view.

The bottom pane of the Feature Library Manager shows the Feature list for the selected plasmid feature. Items in this section can be edited by clicking on them and typing, just as in SeqBuilder Pro’s main Features view. If multiple items are selected in the Feature list, this pane is blank.
