Gene / protein cart
Another new feature of MiST2 is the capability to save up to genes or proteins in the Cart and later fetch their corresponding gene and/or protein sequences. A link to the cart is present on the right hand side of the page just beneath the search panel and is present on every page of the website. Your cart will remain accessible for a little more than 3 hours since your last activity. If you resume browsing 3 or more hours after no activity, your cart may have been emptied. Please be aware that clearing your cache and removing temporary internet files may also result in losing your cart contents.
Adding / removing sequences from the cart
It is also possible to remove sequences from the cart when viewing the cart contents (first click the cart link, see above). Simply select those sequences you wish to remove from the cart, choose the option 'Remove from cart' from the drop-down box at the top of the page, and push the 'Submit' button.
Fetching sequence data
To retrieve the gene or protein sequences for any or all of the sequences in your cart, first make sure you are viewing the cart contents and on the Gene / protein cart page (see above). Next, select the gene/protein sequences of interest by clicking the checkboxes adjacent to each protein and/or using the 'Check all' / 'Uncheck all' hyperlinks. Choose the desired action from the drop-down box at the top of the page and push the 'Submit' button.
