Often the first step in using the Biology Workbench is to use the "Ndjinn Multiple Database Search". The "Ndjinn Multiple Database Search" allows you to search as many or as few of the databases in the Biology Workbench as desired for the text that you specify. By highlighting "Ndjinn Multiple Database Search" and clicking "Run" in any of the three main environments (Protein Tools, Nucleic Tools, or Alignment Tools), you will be presented with a check-box list of databases from which to choose, and a text line which to construct a query. This text line is designed to permit the construction of queries that are as precise or as general as you desire, by utilizing Boolean strings. This will become clearer as you go through the next sections on "Constructing a Query."
