Helen Shearman, PhD, Senior Field Application Scientist, will be presenting a one-hour overview demonstration on SnapGene. SnapGene offers a fast and easy way to plan, visualize, and document your everyday cloning procedures. It makes cloning easier, improves communication, and provides a record of DNA constructs. Helen will be demonstrating how to create plasmid maps, perform cloning, design primers and simulate PCR, and produce alignments.

SnapGene Features:

  • Molecular Cloning – restriction cloning and more
  • Primer Design
  • PCR and Mutagenesis – simulate PCR…
