The import dialog is a standard "file open" dialog. It can be invoked via Files/Import or Ctrl-I.

Multiple files can be chosen to be imported in a row. GENtle will automatically try to determine the file type, but also a file type can be chosen manually.

Supported formats include:

  • GenBank
  • GenBank XML
  • ABI/AB1 (popular sequencer output format)
  • PDB (a 3D format, import as annotated sequence)
  • Clone (old DOS program, proprietary format)
  • Numerous other sequence formats that will be imported as "sequence only", without annnotations, features etc.
  • Comma-separated values (CSV) from various machines (HPLC/FPLC/photometer) for graphs and plots
