The program comes with a variety of Databases.
To try the program with the:
Use the pull-down menus to choose your selected sequences.
The Basic database sequences are named. The other databases have sequences A1, A2, A3, ....
Before a sequence can be compared to the Cambridge Reference Sequence it is necessary to align it.
So, either press AUTO and then RUN, or do it manually .... see below.
- Please note that AUTO is not always successful -
Press See Comments to show the comments for the sequences.
Press any Display number to display the actual sequences.
To save the report, highlight the report and use 'COPY'(ctrl-c)
and 'PASTE'(ctrl-v) the report into any wordprocessor window.
Now try with another sequence !
RESET can be used at any stage allowing the process to be restarted.
The program only handles INSERTIONS and DELETIONS that are known to it.
The program has been tested on 'Internet Explorer 5.5' & 'Firefox 1.0'.
First line ....... var seq = new Array(
<.... any number of sequences with the format below ....>
Last line ....... "eof");
There are 4 lines to each entry and the quotes and commas are essential.
A title & comment .................. "Cambridge \nUnchanged",
('\n' - forces a newline).
The sequence itself ............... "GAT ...... GATG",
A haplogroup field ................ "h2",
An Insertion/deletion list ........ "309+ 3106- eol",
(used only as a check)
The actual sequence can be in lower case, upper case or mixed.
No digits, spaces, carriage returns or linefeeds are permitted in a sequence.
'Replace' in WORD can be useful in preparing sequences
- use a ' ' to replace spaces, '^#' to replace digits,
and '^0010' and '^0013' to remove carriage returns & linefeeds.
