Using Geneious for molecular ecology and conservation genetics

Geneious is the perfect tool to study biodiversity! Whether you’re using long 454 sequencing reads or you have Sanger data, Geneious can help you get meaning from your samples.

Study biodiversity and investigate divergence

Choose your alignment method, then build a phylogenetic tree based on your alignment. Clustal alignment is built in to Geneious.

Identify novel bacterial strains using de-novo assembly

Assemble short reads with Velvet

Determine gene flow between populations

Genotyping with microsatellite analysis. Investigate large genomic events such as horizontal gene transfer with MAUVE

Design cloning PCR experiments

One-step in-silico molecular cloning and PCR operations. Design primers for areas of interest using Primer3.

BLAST and download homologous sequences alongside your own data

Directly download fully annotated reference genomes.
