ARB: a Short Introduction
ARB Command Interpreter (ACI)
Define fields exported with gene species
ARB_NT/Export/Export .. to new ARB database/Transfer Species/Source->Target/Define field transfer for gene species
Here you can define which fields (of the origin organism or of the origin gene of a gene species) should be transferred to the new database and how they should be modified.
To define a new transfer rule, do the following steps:
Enter name of created field
Choose a creation method
If you choose 'Copy from organism/gene' you have to provide a 'Source field' and you MAY provide an ACI expression.
If you choose 'Only use ACI' you have to provide an ACI expression, but no 'Source field'.
Check if the example shows your intended result.
The example will be calculated for the gene-species which is selected in the left Hitlist of the 'TRANSFER SPECIES' window.
The ACI expression applies to the Organism or the Gene if 'Copy from organism/gene' is selected. If 'Only use ACI' is selected it applies to the gene-species.
Note that it is possible to create hierarchical keys. Simply enter something like 'organism/full_name' into the destination field.
When you export gene-species to a new database this database is marked as 'Arb-Genome-Database'. We need to implement some kind of Database-Admin-Tool to change the database type.
