31mar1:00 pm2:00 pmSnapGene: Plan, Visualize and Document your Everyday Molecular Cloning Procedures


Event Details


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…
Enzyme Sets – by company or cutter, detailed enzyme information
Convert File Formats – GenBank, Lasergene, Geneious
Agarose Gel Simulation – restriction digests and PCR amplification
Features/ Annotations – common features, alternate codons
Translations – ORFs, proteins and more
Alignment – DNA sequences with a reference sequence
Visualizing – Multiple views of a DNA sequence


(Wednesday) 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
