DNActions is an OS X widget that can be used to perform common actions on DNA sequences. It is useful for scientists working in genetics and can be used to obtain the complement reverse of a DNA sequence, the protein translation in all six reading frames (three in the forward strand and three in the reverse), find CpG dinucleotides and calculate the composition and the Tm (melting temperature) of a DNA molecule. DNActions main advantage is that it can process several sequences at once. DNActions sits always handy on the Dashboard, requiring no Internet connection.
What's New
Version 1.0:
  • First release.
  • Performs basic tasks for working with DNA sequences that are common in any bioinformatics suite (such as EMBOSS). DNActions main advantages are that it always sits handy on the Dashboard, requires no internet connection and can process several sequences at once.
  • Allows any number of sequences as an input. It will perform the task individually on each sequence and return the result for all sequences.
  • Allows sequences with FASTA header or without header.
  • Allows for the use of degenerate nucleotide symbols.
  • Four modules to perform different actions on DNA sequences:
    • CompRev Module: obtain the complement reverse sequence of a given sequence.
    • Translate Module: obtain the protein translation of a given DNA sequence using the standard genetic code. It can give the translation in the three forward reading frames and in the three reverse reading frames. It can understand degenerate codons.
    • CpG Module: find CpG dinucleotides in a sequence and return their position and the original sequence in lowercase with the CpG dinucleotides highlighted in uppercase.
    • Composition Module: calculate the nucleotide composition and CG% of a DNA sequence. Calculate the Tm (melting temperature) of a DNA sequence.
  • Interface localized to English, Spanish, and French. The little amount of text in the output is always given in English.
  • Built on OS X 10.8.4. Tested on 10.6.8 and 10.8.4. Should work on 10.4.3 or later, but I have no 10.4 or 10.5 installations available to test it.
  • Known issues: Copy button doesn't work for large amounts of data. In these cases I recommend using ⌘A (select all) and ⌘C (copy).
