What is SnapGene History and how do I use it?
SnapGene History View
SnapGene records a "History" of all sequence editing and operations performed via the Actions menu, including cloning, PCR, linearization/circularization and format conversion.
History is viewed via the "History View" tab.
SnapGene embeds most ancestral files in History and allows you to recover them.
Click on a "file" link in History to recover an embedded file as a new stand alone file.
Click on Primer links to recover information about primers used in operations.
Click on an Operation Description to show History Colors on input sequences and the resulting product.
Due to the embedding of ancestral files, SnapGene files with complex Histories may become very large. See the lesson Trim History to learn how to manage large Histories.
