I'd like to export a small piece of sequence information for a specific gene in my genome. Is it possible to do this in genomebrowse?

Are you looking to export sequence from a specific gene from the available reference sequence? If so, first you need to plot the reference sequence by clicking on the plot icon in the tool bar and selecting which build. Once the reference sequence is displayed you can zoom into your area of interest >right click and select 'Feature List'. Here is where you are going to find sequence data. From here you can highlight all (ctrl+A) or select a subset of the rows and right click > copy selected sequence to clipboard.

A good rule of thumb, the feature list will only capture the sequence you have displayed. So for more sequence information, simply zoom out and select 'Feature List' . For less sequence zoom in and select 'Feature List'.

Let me know if this answers your question,
