When importing sequences directly into Benchling from databases like NCBI, Benchling will maintain genomic coordinates. For sequence files that are uploaded, all sequence indexing will begin at 1.

To update a DNA sequence's index:

  1. When viewing a DNA sequence, click on the "i" info button on the bottom right-hand bar
  2. Change the "Start Index" to the desired start coordinate
  3. Click "Update Information"

The genomic coordinates will update accordingly.
