Aug 25, 2016 - MacVector 15 for Mac OS X has just been released with a focus on protein analysis and alignment tools. It contains new tools for submitting protein sequences to functional domain analysis using InterProScan, reference alignment of protein sequences, and being able to align DNA sequences based on their amino acid translation. The reference alignment tool, ALIGN TO REFERENCE has a new setting for identifying INDELS generally seen after CRISPR editing of a target.
Jul 23, 2015 - MacVector, Inc. announces the release of MacVector Cloning Edition, a desktop sequence analysis application for Mac OS X. The lower cost package is aimed solely at users who only need to design and document clone construction. MacVector Cloning Edition provides these users with a highly affordable package. With the availability of the MacVector Cloning Edition, there is now a MacVector product to meet all molecular biologists needs.
Jul 11, 2015 - MacVector, Inc. announces the release of MacVector 14 for Mac OS X. MacVector is a comprehensive Macintosh application that provides sequence editing, primer design, internet database searching, protein analysis, sequence confirmation, multiple sequence alignment, phylogenetic reconstruction, coding region analysis, and a variety of other functions. MacVector is widely regarded as the most intuitive, easy to use program available for sequence analysis.
Nov 15, 2014 - MacVector, Inc. has just released MacVector 13.5, an important update to their popular sequence analysis application for OS X. Developed specifically for molecular biologists, version 13.5 sports a new redesign and rewrite of existing tools to make comparing large sequences even faster and to improve handling of NGS data. The new interface has had many "tweaks" in response to user feedback. Plus a continued approach to performance tuning has ensured this release of MacVector is faster than ever.
Apr 19, 2014 - MacVector, Inc. has just released MacVector 13; a major update with both new functionality and a new look. Velvet has been added for de novo assembly and Quicktest Primer allows you to add restriction sites to primers. MacVector 13 has a muted interface to suit the look and feel of Mavericks and results windows are tabbed to improve data visualization and reduce window clutter. A good proportion of the application has also been rewritten to suit current and future releases of OS X.
Dec 20, 2012 - The recently released MacVector 12.7 sees the introduction of a new complimentary basic edition, MacVector Free. MacVector Free includes many of the basic sequence editing, documentation and analysis functions that molecular biologists use on a day to day basis. With MacVector Free, users can open or download sequences in most sequence formats, edit them, print, copy sequences, modify text and graphics for publication ready figures, and save in any supported format.
Dec 01, 2012 - MacVector, Inc. has released MacVector 12.7; a major update aimed at helping all molecular biologists with their cloning experiments as well introducing a new free version; MacVector Free. The main new feature is the Cloning Clipboard, a new tool for ligating multiple fragments into vectors. This tool will design and document all subcloning operations from simple digests to complex multi fragment procedures such as Multisite Gateway.
Jul 21, 2012 - MacVector, Inc. has just released MacVector 12.6; a major update with many new and enhanced features that further simplifies DNA and protein sequence analysis for all molecular biologists. This release has a brand interactive new tool for designing primers, QuickTest Primer, which redefines the ease and flexibility with which you can design primers. It also has new tools for importing data from genome browsers.
Jan 09, 2012 - MacVector, Inc has released MacVector 12.5; a major update with many new and enhanced features that further simplifies DNA and protein sequence analysis for all molecular biologists. This release is aimed at improving sequence alignments and adding further support for NGS assembly. In MacVector 12.5 Muscle and T-coffee have been added to the Multiple Sequence Alignment editor, complementing the existing ClustalW algorithm. Performance has been increased in many areas and many tools redesigned.
