Release Notes

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.
