How do I prevent conversion of feature names to /label qualifiers when exporting DNA sequences to GenBank files?
UNPUBLISH THIS ARTICLE UPON RELEASE OF 6.1 - INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE IS NOW IN "GENBANK EXPORT CUSTOMIZATION".
By default, SnapGene converts feature names to /label qualifiers for standard GenBank and GenPept formats. Turn off this option to prevent addition of /label qualifiers.
Click SnapGene → Preferences (macOS) or Edit → Preferences (Windows or Linux), and select "Files" in the sidebar.
Uncheck the option to "Export feature names to /label qualifiers for standard GenBank or GenPept format".
View the Exported File
View the output files with a text editor. Feature names will now be listed in /note qualifiers.
