DNAStar has released its latest version of visualisation software, GenVision v2.0, with expanded capabilities for creating publication-quality images depicting large quantities of genomic information. The desktop software is designed to work with the company's Lasergene software to permit easy flow of larger data sets and to make real-time visual and data edits. The software is compatible with Windows XP and Windows Vista systems and Mac OS X 10.4 and 10.5. The enhancements available with the upgraded GenVision will significantly increase its utility in the research community, allowing scientists to work with larger data sets.
