This window is the main editing and viewing window. See the section called Open ... in Chapter 2 or the section called Open from EBI - Dbfetch ... in Chapter 2 to find out how to read an entry (and hence open one of these windows).
The following images show a breakdown of the main Artemis edit window. The full screen shot is here.
The menus for the main window (described later in this chapter).
This line contains one button for each entry that has been loaded. These buttons allow the user to set the default entry (see the section called The Default Entry in Chapter 1) and to set the active entries (see the section called The Active Entries in Chapter 1). For more detail on operating the buttons see the section called The Entry Button Line.
This shows an overview of the sequence and the features from the active entries. (see the section called The Overview and DNA Views).
This is called the "DNA view" to distinguish it from the overview, but in fact it operates in a very similar way. (see the section called The Overview and DNA Views).
A textual summary of the active features. (See the section called The Feature List).
