SnapGene as a Laboratory Resource
The traditional model for molecular biology software is wasteful.
In many labs, individual researchers are not provided with molecular biology software. They typically use freeware with limited functionality. A lab may own one or a few commercial software licenses, but researchers do not have this software on their personal computers.
This traditional approach wastes time and money because experimental design, communication between lab members, and record keeping are all inefficient.
Molecular biology software should be a laboratory resource.
Software for planning, visualizing, and documenting molecular biology procedures is an essential tool that should be given to researchers when they join a lab.
Ideally, each researcher would receive a license for a software program that is used by the entire group.
The following characteristics make SnapGene an excellent laboratory resource:
|When your lab upgrades to SnapGene, everything will change. Cloning will be easier, communication will improve, and you will have complete records of your DNA constructs. You will wonder how you ever got along without it!|
