What is SnapGene for Mac

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 5.2.4:
New functionality:
  • Added DNA ladders from GeneBio Systems.
  • Improved application stability when dragging out selections.
  • Corrected a regression to ensure detection of restriction sites whose recognition sequences span the numerical origin.
  • Populate the "Description" fields when pasting GenBank content into the New File dialogs.
  • Improved the detection of sequence type when importing DNASTAR SeqBuilder files.
  • Corrected a regression to restore transfer of primers when pasting a copied DNA sequence.
  • Fixed an issue that could result in editing-induced disappearance of a sequence aligned to a reference DNA sequence.
  • Enabled simulation of Gateway BP and LR recombination around the numerical origin.
  • Improved application stability when searching for enzymes, features, and primers.
  • Corrected a misleading message that was shown when a problem occurred during program activation.
  • Ensured that the enzyme set indicator does not occlude content after scrolling to the bottom of Sequence view.
  • Streamlined the side toolbar in the Insert Codons, Choose Alternative Codons, Browse Common Features and Insert Feature dialogs.
  • Restored highlighting of the called base under the mouse when viewing sequence traces.
  • Improved application stability when using the "Find similar DNA sequences" command.
  • Improved performance when showing the Add Primer dialog and other dialogs that provide controls for choosing files.
  • Ensured highlighting of the inserted region for Gateway BP cloning in the Insert tab, and of the ancestral insert in History view for the resulting product file.
  • Restored import of ssRNA sequences as double-stranded rather than single-stranded DNA.
  • Prevented repetitive alignment to a reference sequence when making simple edits such as insertions, deletions, and same-size replacements.
  • Ensured that the Next button is the default control after searching a sequence trace.
  • Ensured correct scrolling of Sequence, Features, and Primers views in response to a change in the selection, but only when appropriate.
  • Improved application stability when quitting.
  • Improved application stability when hovering over aligned sequences.
  • Improved application stability when mousing over features.
  • Improved application tability when searching a collection for a named feature.
  • Improved application stability when importing primers.
  • Improved reliability when importing from NCBI.
