Duplicate biomodules to create variants

With the Breeze BioCAD you can easily create variants of a biomodule by duplicating it and track how they are connected through parent linking.

You can duplicate a construct from the info tab within the biomodule information page in your collection.

Your duplicated biomodule

You have now created a new biomodule with a matching sequence

Note, your new part will automatically be given the suffix "copy".

Within the biomodule information page you can view the connection to the previous construct under the parent field.

Editing the new duplicated biomodule allows you to make changes to the new sequence without affecting the original sequence.
