Searching Genomes by Specific Gene
We are going to select the same gene for all sequences,
by default this is selected already. If you wished
to choose a different gene from each genome you could
do so at this point.
Click 'browse' next to the gene name text fileld. This will
open a separate window which contains a listbox containing a
list of gene names that are in common in all genomes selected.
Select 'ccrB' (a recombinase within the SCC mec element) from this list and click select' - Click here for screenshot.
You will notice that 'ccrB' has been inserted in the gene name textbox.
By default the length of flanking sequence to be displayed
either side of the gene of choice is set to 50000bp.
Should you wish to view smaller or larger regions this can be changed here.
