Tutorial Length

This tutorial should take about 20 minutes, depending on how long you spend investigating the data, and how fast your machine is. Note that if you must stop part way through the tutorial, exit the program by selecting Exit from the File menu. The data and experiments you have performed to that point will be saved automatically by the application. The next time you start GeneLinkerô, you can continue on with the next step in the tutorial.
