After creating a feature library in Benchling, you can auto-annotate your sequences based on the information stored in the feature libraries.
1. Open the annotation panel by clicking the Annotation icon on the top right of the screen.
2. Click the Auto Annotate button.
3. Select which feature library you want to annotate your sequences from or click the Search all libraries button if you want to annotate from all of your feature libraries.
4. Select the annotations you want, and click the Add Annotations button. You should now see several annotations added to your sequence.
Note: You can use annotations from an existing sequence. Benchling will search for annotations in the sequence you enter and mark them in the sequence you are annotating.
Auto-annotate sequences in bulk
You can quickly annotate many DNA sequences in bulk, taking advantage of your feature libraries. To bulk auto-annotate sequences:
Expand your project or folder that holds your plasmids.
Select all of the sequences you want to annotate.
From the More menu, find Analyze and then click Auto-Annotate.
Choose which feature libraries you want to use.
After you've chosen the feature libraries, click Auto-Annotate to annotate all your sequences at once.
