Select Sequence

Choosing Select... Sequence opens an interface for selecting residues by entering a specific sequence or pattern of amino acids or nucleotides. To instead display an entire sequence and select segments within it with the mouse, use the Sequence tool.

The sequence selection dialog has two sections arranged as index cards; clicking the tab for a card brings it to the front.

Note that occurrences in all sequence types (protein, DNA, and RNA) will be considered matches unless the option to Force interpretation... as protein or nucleic acid sequence is on. When the option is on, only sequences of the indicated type will be examined for matches.

Multalign Viewer can perform similar searches within a sequence alignment.
