Rules for allowing users to change automatically assigned names

In order to ensure consistency, users cannot change automatically assigned component names under most circumstances. But there are a few exceptions as listed below:

  • When a component’s sequence is pasted by the user, the user must assign a name for it. Brackets will be added to indicate that the name is defined by the user.
  • When an ORF retrieved from VectorBuilder’s ORF database has been edited by the user to introduce mutations, a * will be automatically added next to the official ORF name. The user can choose to use this name or change it to a different name. If the user chooses to change the name, brackets will be added to indicate that the name is defined by the user.
