What is SnapGene Viewer for Mac

SnapGene Viewer is a versatile tool for creating and sharing richly annotated sequence files. It opens many common file formats.

What's new in SnapGene Viewer

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.
