What is Artemis ?
Artemis is a free genome viewer and annotation tool that allows visualisation of sequence features and the results of sequence analyses. It also supports all six-frame translations. It has been developed at the Sanger Institute.
How to open the Artemis java applet ?
You can access the Artemis Java applet by using:
A new window appears with the Artemis interface. All genomic objects are listed in the bottom part of the window using their labels. You can click on the right button of your mouse and select Show Gene names to identify the objects by their gene names instead.
How to use to Artemis to identify alternative Start codons ?
Double click on an object to select it in the upper part of the window. The object is then positioned at its start position.
Once you have identified an alternative Start codon, you can copy its position and change the value in the Gene annotation editor window of your gene.
What do I do if java doesn’t work on my computer ?
Go to the Artemis Website: http://www.sanger.ac.uk/resources/software/artemis/
Download Artemis and install it on your personal computer.
Use the Export functionality to export your genome as an EMBL file. You can then open it with your personal version of Artemis.
