Geneious Pro 2.01
Biomatters has introduced Geneious Pro 2.01, a software solution that incorporates collaboration, sequence alignment editing and ClustalW to make bioinformatics easier for all scientists. Geneious is a self-organizing, automatically-updating library of genomic and genetic data that provides a fully integrated, visually-advanced toolset for sequence alignment and phylogenetics, sequence analysis, and BLAST protein structure viewing. Geneious Pro now adds the ability for users to collaborate and share data, offers manual sequence editing functions, enables annotation editing, features sequence alignment, allows new sequence creation, and brings chromatogram visualization. In addition, version 2.01 brings a revamped user interface, improved search and agents, a public API for third-party plugins, and support for additional commonly used import/export file formats. Geneious is free, while licensing for the Pro version starts at $133 per year ($40 for six-month student academic license).
