MacVector 11.1 is designed to simplify and speed up many common workflows as well as providing better integration with OS X and improving performance. Changes include increased interactivity between different views of a sequence, drag and drop of files and sequences between windows and dialogs, Growl support for the job manager, many performance enhancements and literally hundreds of other interface tweaks.
Other recently added functions include an auto annotation function that will scan a folder full of existing annotated sequences and automatically add matching features to your bare sequence. Next Generation support for the optional add-on Assembler module has also been further enhanced. These new features combined with a host of minor enhancements and updates make MacVector 11.1 the most exciting upgrade yet!
MacVector, Inc's President, Dr. Kevin Kendall, said "When MacVector 11 was released in August, 2009, we said that it was our best release yet, both in terms of new functionality and improvements made to the interface. However, everything can be improved and so we continued to listen to users feedback, and we concentrated on the usability of the most common workflows that molecular biologists do. Furthermore we have continued to improve the integration of MacVector with OS X and have made some dramatic performance improvements for handling long sequences and large assemblies."
MacVector, Inc. was formed at the beginning of 2007 to develop, support and sell MacVector and Assembler. MacVector has offices in the US and the UK, along with distributors in Japan, Taiwan and Australia. MacVector is a desktop sequence analysis application running on the Macintosh. Assembler is a desktop sequence assembly add on for MacVector.
