DNAStar has released Lasergene v8.1, the latest version of its sequence analysis software, incorporating a range of new features. New features include an automated virtual Multisite Gateway cloning capability, and Assemble in Groups for simultaneous analysis of SNPs from multiple sources. The new desktop software also provides additional SNP reporting capabilities that include neighborhood quality scoring. Expanded next-gen data analysis capabilities permit users to easily analyse and manage larger projects generated from Roche 454, Illumina, ABI SOLiD and Helicos platforms.
Lasergene v8.1 is compatible with the company’s new next generation sequence assembly tool, SeqMan NGen. Many of the new features are designed to provide increased analysis flexibility to next generation sequence analysis projects. Lasergene v8.1 is compatible with Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7, as well as Mac Os X 10.4, 10.5 and 10.6.
