A domain in BioEddie is defined as a continuous stretch of peptide monomers or nucleotides in a single sequence component. It an be used to annotate any functionally or structurally distinguished region of a given sequence.
Load the sequence of interest
Move your mouse cursor over a sequence until the component (not a monomer or bond) of interest is highlighted then double click
Sequence Editor will pop-up for further actions
In the section for domains, click on "+ Add New"
Add a name for the domain
Enter the position of the first and the last sequence residue in the domain
Click on "Done" to complete the addition
Add more domains if required to the same sequence by repeating the steps above
Please note, that any sequence residue can only be part of one domain, i.e. overlapping domains are not supported.
By default a domain displayed on the canvas view in expanded state. The name (if provided) is visible inside the frame of the domain.
A selected domain can be collapsed or expanded by using the and buttons.
