Geneious Prime is a bioinformatics software platform that is both ultra-powerful and easy to use. Scientists, researchers and students are able to search, organize, and analyze genomic and protein information via a single desktop program that provides publication ready images to enhance the impact of your research.

This is Desktop software that is available on all popular operating systems (Windows, Mac, Linux)

More information about this software can be found on the Geneious web site:

Geneious Prime will run on Windows, MacOS and Linux

You must submit a request through to obtain access to this package. This software requires access to a floating license server, and so care should be taken to return licenses when the software is not actively being used (i.e. close the application). OSTR holds 10 concurrent licenses of Geneious Prime. You need to either be on the NIH network or VPN to use this package.

MacVector, SnapGene and CLC BioWorkbench provide somewhat similar functionality

  • Geneious Prime does not include a workflow to conduct epigenetic analysis. Please see Partek Flow or CLC Genomics Workbench for this functionality.
  • This package does not support pathway or gene ontology analyses. Please see Partek Flow, Partek Genomics Suite, Qiagen Ingenuity Pathway Analysis (IPA), or Qlucore Omics Explorer to gain insight on the network and pathway level.
  • There is no workflow for single cell RNA sequencing. For this, refer to Partek Flow or Qlucore Omics Explorer.
