[prMac.com] Cambridge, United Kingdom - The new Cloning Clipboard tool simplifies the creation of new DNA constructs. The new functionality lets you join molecules together using an intuitive drag and drop interface and also lets you easily accomplish cloning constructs that were difficult with earlier versions of MacVector. This tool will design and document all subcloning operations from simple digests to complex multi fragment procedures such as Multisite Gateway. The history of every ligation event is annotated to the sequence showing the enzymes used, the date and any end modifications.
There's also been performance enhancements to the Dot Plot tool and to the Align To Reference editor, allowing you to now run pairwise alignments of whole genomes in just a few minutes or to align hundreds of thousands of NGS Reads against a reference genome. New options in the Reverse Translation tool allowing you to optimize codon usage when reverse translating a protein.
MacVector 12.7 also sees the introduction of a new free basic edition, Macvector Free. You can use MacVector Free to open or download sequences in any supported format, edit them, print, copy sequences, text and graphics, and save in any supported format. You can even create new sequence constructs by clicking on restriction enzyme sites, copying and pasting into other sequence molecules.
MacVector, Inc's President, Dr. Kevin Kendall, said "Most molecular biologists have to clone and subclone their genes of interest. The new Cloning Clipboard in MacVector simplifies this task dramatically and allows the documentation of multi-fragment constructs in an intuitive way. Every ligation is documented with the overhang ends and the date and enzymes used. MacVector is designed by molecular biologists, not sales people. We're also very happy to be able to provide MacVector Free so that even casual users can take advantage of MacVector's powerful sequence viewing capabilities "
MacVector 12.7 is fully supported on Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion to to OS X 10.5 Leopard.
