Protein and gene summary page
Just beneath the navigation, the full Refseq annotation for the currently viewed protein (left-hand side) and its corresponding gene (right-hand side) are displayed along with various identification information. Beside the protein and gene labels is the internal MiST2 identifier. To obtain either the protein/gene sequence click on the respective 'Sequence' link(s). Depending on which link was clicked, a bordered box will appear with either the amino acid or DNA sequence. Click either the 'Close' link or the 'Sequence' link to hide the box.
Another useful feature is the ability to quickly retrieve the subsequence corresponding to any visualized element of the domain architecture. Simply hover the mouse over a particular element and a bordered box will appear below that element with information about the region coordinates and clicking on the element will "freeze" the box in position and display its subsequence.
The genome neighborhood section graphically portrays the genomic context of the currently viewed gene (shown as a red arrow) and provides a fluid, dynamic method for ascertaining the properties of neighboring genes (shown as gray arrows). Clicking on one of the gray arrows will dynamically update the page to display the information associated with the newly selected gene and encoded protein. In this manner it is possible to fluidly and rapidly navigate the genes encoded on the chromosome (or contig). It is also possible to pan the genome neighborhood window by clicking on the whitespace and dragging the mouse.
