View a translation
To view a translation for a selected sequence, highlight a section of the plasmid on the left side sequence map, and right-click. Click Create Translation and then Forward to view the forward translation for that selection. The translate will show up in line with your DNA sequence.
Analyze a translation
Right-click your translation and click Analyze as Translation.
Benchling will display any biochemical properties for that translation. In particular, you'll see the following properties:
Translation position relative to the DNA sequence
Molecular weight of the resulting protein
The protein's isoelectric point (pI)
Amino acid frequencies in the translation
Create an Amino Acid Sequence
To create an amino acid sequence from a translation overlaid on a DNA sequence, right-click the translation and select "Create AA Sequence". Choose a folder and name for your new amino acid and then click "Create".
Once you've completed this tutorial you may want to learn about creating and linking a protein translation next.
