Deleting a genome or experiment is easy!

  1. Select the genome/experiment to delete by clicking on it. When selected its background will turn dark green.
    1. To select multiple genomes/experiments hold the CTRL or SHIFT key (may vary based on your keyboard)
  2. Click the "trash" icon Trash icon.png at the top of the list.

Note that the deleted genomes and experiments are not actually removed from the system. The data persist but are marked as unavailable and won't appear in any of CoGe's tools. Deleted genomes can be undeleted in a similar fashion in the "Trash" menu (see left of list).
