Import proteins / AA sequences

  • Updated

Go to your project and click on the create button in the upper right hand corner of the project side panel. Select Import AA sequences from the dropdown menu. 


Alternatively, click on the global create button, navigate to AA Sequence and choose Import AA sequence from the dropdown menu.

Select the folder and project on Benchling where you would like your AA sequence to be saved.

Drag and drop a file or click the Choose a File button to locate the file on your computer. We currently support FASTA, GenPept, and Uniprot XML files. GenPept and/or UniProt XML files can be uploaded to keep track of annotations.

Benchling let’s you import AA sequences from external databases by simply typing in the Accession number that you're looking for. Select a database and upload your AA sequence directly into Benchling.
