SnapGene is a product of GSL Biotech, the first molecular biology software that is easier to use than pen and paper. Now any DNA made in your lab can be recorded in an electronic file and shared worldwide with the free software SnapGene Viewer.

In-Fusion® Cloning: A versatile, versatile way to create borderless gene connections. SnapGene is the first software to simulate this method. Just select the piece of DNA you want to mix, the program will design it.
Gibson Assembly®: Many researchers are converting Gibson assembly into plasmids without the use of restricted enzymes. The DNA fragments are joined by PCR to interfere.
PCR & Mutagenesis: After primer design, they can be used for conventional PCR cloning, co-PCR amplifications or mutagenesis. The resulting DNA sequence files are immediately available for further manipulation.
Auto Documentation: Automatically records the steps in a simulation project. Each time you edit or simulate a sequence, this method is automatically recorded in graphical history. After simulating the structure of DNA, you can use history as an experimental protocol.
Agarose Gel Electrophoresis: Using an advanced algorithm to create realistic agarose simulation. The finite parts are displayed in three simulated gel formats, numerical lists and sequence maps. You can use this simulated gel to plan a diagnostic constraint or compare an image with a prediction pattern.

For most users the layout is far from intuitive, but this is only because they are not accustomed to the terminology of the domain the application is intended for.

You can easily enable the display of enzymes, primers or translations in the map view and all the elements are interactive not just in terms of highlighting the selection but also of editing.

The menus available in the top part of the application window are highly visible and contain a clear set of options.

SnapGene is not for the average user as its purpose is scientific but, if you are familiar with the terminology and DNA sequences there should not be too long until you uncover the possibilities included in the application.

After loading a DNA file (some samples are available in the program) you can start analyzing the genetic sequence.

It allows finding genes by showing open reading frames (ORFs) and users can add, edit, remove or duplicate features or primers.

SnapGene has no problem working with larger sequences as it supports even one gigabase large sequences.

At the bottom of the main application window there are several tabs that can switch the view to check the sequence, enzymes (display restriction sites), features and primers.

Export functions enable saving a particular selection, an entire sequence or map. This also applies to features and primers.

SnapGene has a specific purpose and it is highly flexible as far as finding items or groups of similar items. It includes plenty of documentation, accessible in the form of video tutorials as well. Its applicability is restricted to the field of molecular biology.
