    If importing a sequence, the .txt file's name replaces the auto-generated text in the Name field.

      Advanced Sequence Search offers options to focus the search by Query Coverage % and E-Value.

  6. Click the Run Search button. Note: If the imported or entered sequence is in an invalid format or contains invalid characters, an error message displays.


You will then see your search is in progress; when complete, click the View Results button.
