Below there is a list of all gels for the current project that haven't been transferred to the database yet. Each gel is listed by its name and some information about how much of the analysis is completed.
These are the columns at the right hand side of the gels list :
Double click on a gel name and the is opened and Step 1 comes up.
A gel might be listed in grey, instead of black writing. This means that the gel is locked. A gel is locked when somebody else is editing it at this time. A gel will be unlocked if you quit the program (using the [Quit program] button), or when go back to the main screen from Step 1.
However: a gel might have been left locked by mistake when the program died by other means that the quit button, such as a server shutdown, a program crash or other nasty crash situations.
If you double click on gel which is locked, a dialog box will pop up and tell you who on which machine (in the format username@hostname) locked the gel at what date and time. If you're very sure that this gel was left locked by mistake, click on [Yes] and proceed editing, otherwise click [No] and stay in this window.
