Analyzing a cloned smRNA. The first table shows the MySQL database entry, which is created automatically once a cloned smRNA is found (entering id/filename, sequence of smRNA in correct 5'-3' orientation, length and sample source). The group annotation pull-down menu offers the user a choice from a variety of group annotations. A new group can be named in the adjacent text field (it will be entered into the MySQL entry of the clone in question and the pull down menu will be updated and alphabetically sorted with the new group). Further annotation details can be added in the annotation text field. The orientation field offers three choices: N/A, antisense and sense.
