Version 4.1 details
Version 4.1 offers enhanced flexibility, with a focus on file history trees and the collection interface.
Limit File History Trees
History trees are one of SnapGene’s most powerful features, but large history trees make sequence files unwieldy and slow the simulations. Now you can automatically limit the size of history trees, or manually trim history trees for individual files or sets of files.
View Folders in a Collection
Files in a collection can now be organized in nested folders. The file hierarchy is visible with an optional folder view.
Define Code Numbers for a Collection
For DNA files in a collection, a versatile interface allows specification of the code number format. Newly added or imported files can automatically receive sequential code numbers.
Create a Working Set for a Collection
Files of interest in a collection can be assigned to a "Working Set". Those files are then easily accessed both in the collection and in cloning windows.
Sort a Collection by "Date Created"
Files in a collection can now be sorted either by “Date Added” or “Date Created”.
Choose Enzymes More Precisely
The Choose Enzymes dialog offers new options for specifying the properties of the recognition sequence.

Version 4.0 details
Version 4.0 takes SnapGene to a new level of utility by supporting “collections”, which are browsable and searchable databases of DNA and protein files.
Other changes improve the responsiveness and stability of the software.
Make and Browse Sequence Collections
Store DNA and protein files in specialized folders that allow the contents to be browsed with a flexible interface. Sort the files by name, code number, or date added. Define a “Main Collection” that can be shared by a group, and create personal collections for individual projects.
Search a Collection
Choose from a wide set of options to find files with specific contents or properties.
Annotate Introns Faster
With a translated feature, convert lowercase regions to introns, or convert existing introns to lowercase.
Do a Batch Replacement
Use a collection to perform batch replacement of a specific DNA or protein sequence, feature name, primer name, or sequence author.
Define a Sequence Alias
Display an alternative name for a plasmid or other sequence.
Import Swiss-Prot Files
Open protein sequence files in Swiss-Prot format directly in SnapGene.
