What's New
Version 7.1.3:
  • Wrapper Plugin Creation: Fixed crash when setting default value for integer options, added inputFolderName variable, and allow executable to be from a bundled sub-folder
  • Sequence Viewer: Fixed poor performance or hang when finding variants on large contigs, trimming large lists, or selecting large regions
  • Sequence Viewer: Fixed crash when turning a track on/off while the same document has unsaved changes in another window
  • Alignment/Contig Viewer: Fixed incorrect statistics and/or crash when selecting a subset of the sequences in an alignment or config
  • CAF Importer (used by MIRA): Fixed hang when importing results when low on memory
  • Separate by barcode: Fixed crash when trimming without a barcode
  • Workflows: Fixed some assembly, mapping, and extract annotation options being wrongly disabled when configuring it from a workflow
  • Fixed a bug with Custom Blast databases where the Accession numbers of hits wouldn't show up
  • Fixed a bug with Custom Blast databases where certain original Geneious names for hit sequences wouldn't get returned
  • SAM/BAM import: Fixed crash importing some files which contain padded alignments
  • SAM/BAM import: Fixed import incorrectly aligning some reads in padded alignments that have soft trimming
  • Document Table: Fixed rare crash when editing a property of a document
  • General: Fixed rare crash that could happen when selecting any folder or performing a sequence search
  • Database backup: Fixed a bug that causes Geneious to crash on DB backup on MacOS if the OS creates Files in the DB while the backup is running
  • Sequencing Preferences: If you edit a profile it now applies those settings. Previously you had to change the selected profile for the settings to take effect
  • Sort topologies: Fixed duplicate topologies generated for unrooted trees. Also problems with applying threshold option

"free" in this case means $795. Oh, well.

Thanks for pointing out the error in our listing. I've updated it (based on the "Student pricing option listed on the developer's site).

The basic version is free for academic/student use. Here's a feature comprison:

@Negritude: thanks for the info. However, a sequence analysis program that in the free version does not even allow editing sequences (let alone sequence alignments and annotations), or the search for ORFs, or primer design, is hardly useful. I recommend "SerialCloner" which does a good job in my lab, and is really free.

Note that 5.4.0 is a beta. The current stable release is 5.3.6. Check the developer's web site for more info.

Geneious is a superb piece of software for all molecular biologists. I love it. It saved me heaps of time.

For a long time scientists who generate or analyse DNA sequences have been using multiple pieces of software to: 1) view chromatographs, 2) trim sequences 3) Blast data 4) align sequences 5) build phylogenetic trees. Chopping and changing between different file formats and at times different operating systems (Mac, PC, Unix/Linux) has been a frustrating and time-consuming exercise. Current and future releases of Geneious (www.geneious.com) offer a solution to (most) of these frustrations. The software logo “research in a flash” accurately describe the potential of Geneious - only months after its release it has become the “Swiss army knife” of bioinformatics software.

The user interface of Geneious is both attractive and intuitive. While the software has some “bell and whistles” for more complex tasks one of its key attributes is a simple user interface. Earlier this year I used the Beta-release in some undergraduate teaching labs - with great success. Students did a Genbank search, downloaded files, did an alignment and built a phylogenetic tree (with bootstrapping) all in the blink of an eye. If you are looking for a piece of bioinformatics software for teaching purposes look no further than Geneious.

With the integration of sequence chromatograph viewing and editing of DNA sequences/alignments (new in version 2) Geneious is now firmly embedded in my research practices. As is the case with any new software there are a few features that don't work quite as well as you might like - but the good news is that if you write to them they will likely fix it up asap. My request to provide a variety of nucleotide colour schemes was implemented within 2 weeks. Moreover, the software is structured in such a way that “new” plugins can be written and incorporated with relative ease.

The Geneious team has made available a freeware version and a pro version that (for a price) allows you to access more functionality. Based on the hours of time this program has saved me already I would not even blink at the academic price tag of $133 (USD) - or cheaper for students.

The software almost has too many features to comment on in any one review (e.g. “agents” and collaboration modes) - the best advice I can give is to download it, do the tutorial and test drive it on a bioinformatics task that you regularly conduct - it won't disappoint.
Cheers,
[Version 2.0.4]
