Version 5.1 details
Version 5.1 provides enhanced flexibility for displaying and annotating sequences. Updates include an improved layout for linear maps, an optional split view for sequence windows, more versatile controls for enzyme visibility, and links between related folders in different areas of a SnapGene collection.
Better Linear Maps
Enzyme sites and other annotations in a linear map are now allowed to overlap, thereby reducing map height while preserving legibility.
Optional Split View
A DNA or protein sequence window can be split to show two different views, or two versions of the same view.
Enzyme Visibility Controls
Like features and primers, individual enzymes can now be shown or hidden using check boxes.
Links Between Collection Areas
Flexible Choice of Reference Type
When adding references to the Description Panel, a variety of reference types are now available.
Adjustable Threshold for Feature Detection
When importing features from another SnapGene file or detecting common features, the match threshold can be adjusted between 80-100%.
Batch Edits in Collections
A SnapGene collection now supports batch edits of multiple files for flipping sequences, importing features or primers, detecting features or primers, performing BLAST searches, and specifying entries in the Description Panel.
Optional Stripes for “A” Traces
In a sequence trace file, the “A” trace can be displayed with stripes to support researchers with color vision disabilities.
Pre-defined “Type IIS Enzymes” Set
Type IIS enzymes, which are used for Golden Gate assembly, can be displayed using a pre-defined enzyme set.
