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 5.0.8:
  • Added support for importing whole genome shotgun sequencing projects from NCBI.
  • Added a sequence length indicator for sequences imported into the Assemble Contigs dialog.
  • Made various text, color, and icon enhancements.
  • Enabled "Save All", "Save to Collection", and "Save to Main Collection" commands when multiple files are selected in a collection.
  • Corrected an issue that could cause the font used in Sequence view to be wrong on Windows.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented double-clicking from opening files with spaces in their names on Lubuntu Linux.
  • Ensured that features that wrap around the numerical origin are always properly displayed.
  • Corrected an issue that prevented opening sequence traces from remote locations when the file path includes non-Latin characters.
  • Fixed a stability issue when expanding the "Aligned Sequences" menu using SnapGene Viewer.
  • Ensured correct creation of features with annotated gaps from selected aligned sequences.
  • Ensured that newly imported sequences for aligning to a reference DNA sequence are always trimmed properly.
  • Prevented a collection from becoming unresponsive when adding files manually before dismissing the "Add DNA File" dialog.
  • Fixed an issue with writing feature names to GenBank format for assembly_gap, mobile_element, propeptide, regulatory, and telomere feature types.
  • Ensured that release notes are consistently shown when announcing that a new version of SnapGene is available.
  • Fixed an issue that resulted in the End User License Agreement dialog being too tall on smaller displays.
  • Ensured that matches to searches are always shown.
  • Ensured that Shift-clicking items in a list consistently results in a range-based selection.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented aligning a pair of DNA or protein sequences on some Linux systems.
  • Improved the conversion of DNA alignments to protein alignments.
  • Improved the mouse cursor for various controls that show tooltips but do not respond to mouse presses.
  • Ensured proper display of the message indicating that hybridization parameters need to be adjusted to show primer binding sites.
  • Removed the "Show alignments" button from the side toolbar in the Design Synthetic Construct dialog.
  • Ensured correct labeling of protein feature segments after making a protein from a DNA feature that contains introns.
  • Changed "bases" to to "residues" in the REFERENCE field when exporting protein sequences to GenPept format.
  • Corrected an issue with annotating common features that are found at the beginning of the sequence.
  • Improved highlighting of feature boundaries under the mouse cursor when using compact format in Sequence view.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented import of unsaved open sequences into the "Assemble Contigs" dialog.
  • Corrected a stability issue that resulted from closing a window while a menu was expanded.
  • Corrected an issue with aligning multiple DNA sequences that were recently imported from NCBI.
  • Ensured that header buttons are not always aligned with the column content when viewing a collection in List format.
  • Improved the behavior when double-clicking folders in collections.
  • Ensured that appropriate icons are shown next to unsaved files in the Window menu.
  • Fixed an issue that could prevent operation of the MUSCLE aligner.
  • Ensured that the Print and Save buttons in the toolbar are always correctly enabled or disabled when viewing a collection.
  • Corrected an issue in which protein sequences that count from a value other than 1 were sometimes shifted to the right in Sequence view.
  • Improved the display of a cursor placed within a gap when viewing alignments to a reference DNA sequence in Sequence view.
  • Corrected an issue that could result in feature labels being shown without being connected by a stem.
