Molecular biology software.


SnapGene offers the fastest and easiest way to plan, visualize, and document your molecular biology procedures. The streamlined interface supports a range of cloning and PCR manipulations. Thanks to SnapGene Viewer, the files can be shared with colleagues around the world.

Pricing varies with usage, license type, and the number of seats, as can be seen here.

What's new in SnapGene

Version 5.0.7:
  • Updated the common features database.
  • Added a "Clear List" action to the bottom of the menu in the "Import Primers from a List" dialog.
  • (Requested by Michael Baughn)
  • Fixed a regression with the background color for copied and exported gels.
  • (Reported by Russ Collins)
  • Improved compatibility of collections that are stored on a Google Shared Drive.
  • (Reported by Kurt De Vos and Michael Gotrik)
  • Improved stability when importing Vector NTI databases.
  • (Reported by Christoph Harms)
  • Corrected an issue that could cause aligned sequences to disappear after saving.
  • (Reported by Denise Lanza and Adrian R)
  • Substantially improved the decoding of alignment and sequence trace data from Vector NTI .cep files.
  • (Reported by Dale Cowley)
  • Fixed an issue in which aligned copied sequences were not always shown.
  • (Reported by Leonid V)
  • Corrected a regression that could result in inferior alignments to a reference sequence.
  • (Reported by Elisabeth Boger)
  • Restored the "Import Features from a SnapGene File..." command to the Features menu when working with a protein file.
  • (Reported by Anton Schmitz)
  • Improved the import of feature name, color, and directionality data as well as the map label from GenBank files exported by Vector NTI.
  • (Reported by Terete Borras)
  • Adding missing Edit → Copy Amino Acids menu actions when viewing a protein file in a collection.
  • Streamlined the interface by not displaying feature descriptions when detecting common features or importing features.
  • Ensured that tapping Enter correctly selects the contents of line edit fields in the Description Panel.
  • Ensured that ambiguous bases in traces are consistently shown as black on a yellow background.
  • Disabled Undo after making an edit to a very long DNA sequence because such operations cannot presently be undone.
  • Fixed a regression that caused deletions at the very beginning of a sequence to generate unexpected results and to be especially slow in large sequences.
  • Prevented adding a folder with a duplicate name in a collection by disabling the "OK" button instead of showing a scary window.
  • Improved the display of hybridization for primers in the Mutagenesis dialog and PCR-based cloning dialogs.
  • Enabled mutagenesis to be simulated using a primer that hybridizes perfectly but includes degenerate bases.
  • Made various format improvements for printing.
  • Ensured that ruler tick marks are always the correct height in Sequence view.
  • Improved colors for protein feature labels and lines with dark and other nonstandard background colors.
  • Ensured that all trace data are shown near trimming handles for aligned sequences.
  • Fixed a regression that sometimes resulted in disappearing features and grayed-out bases when nonaligned regions were shown by dragging the right trimming handle.
  • Added a warning before attempting to align pairs of very large sequences.
  • Fixed various visual issues when viewing nonaligned ends in an alignment to a reference DNA sequence.
  • Improved scrolling to mismatches and to the next or previous aligned region in an alignment to a reference DNA sequence, and properly disabled these controls when there is no destination for scrolling.
  • Fixed setting the collection folder icon when creating a new collection or while asking to open the main collection.
  • Corrected an issue that could cause the wrong name to be shown for unsaved open files when setting the options for a pairwise alignment.
