Troubleshoot: Know and learn about the file formats that TeselaGen supports.

Written by Eduardo Abeliuk

TeselaGen supports the main file formats that you probably use already for sequences and designs: .gb, .gbk, .zip, .fasta, .csv, .xlsx and .json

Let's see briefly how to import and export your data and some details related to formatting that you may take into consideration. At the end of this set of articles we’ll see a bit more about the information that these types of files store.   

Sequence files

Our Design Module supports .gb(k), .zip, .fasta, .csv and .xlsx files for your sequences. Just go to the "DNA Sequences" library and click the “Upload Sequences” button. If you have your data in a spreadsheet make sure you download it in .csv or .xlsx format before. In addition to that you can also download an example (.csv or .xlsx) from the “Upload Sequences” window (Fig. 1) which you can use as a template to upload your own data.

You can also create new sequences from scratch or upload them in bulk. For this, we recommend you to read this article and learn step by step how to do it and get more information about what you can do with them.

If you want to export your sequences you can do so from two different interfaces: from the "DNA Sequences" library in .gb(k) and .fasta formats and from the "Vector Editor" in .gb(k), .fasta and .json formats. From the “DNA Sequences” library you just right-click on your sequence and select the “Export” option (Fig. 2). From the “Vector Editor” open the “File” menu at the upper left hand, then select “Export Sequence” and choose one of the three file formats available (Fig. 3).
