API & Customization
Customize, automate and integrate Geneious Prime to increase efficiency in your organization
Wrapper Plugin Creator for Command Line Programs
Use the graphical wrapper plugin creator to run an existing command line program from inside Geneious Prime without writing any code. The Geneious RAxML, Garli and FastTree plugins were created this way.
Install the above plugin in Geneious Prime and use Create/Edit Wrapper Plugin in the File menu to get started.
Add Custom Code to Workflows
Workflows allow you to automate your analysis and to customize Geneious Prime. In addition to all of the built-in workflow components, you can write snippets of Java code to perform custom steps.
Custom code allows you to create Geneious operations that do almost anything. The Workﬂow custom code automatically inserts the surrounding import statements for the complete Geneious API and a class framework around the methods you implement.
EXPLORE GENEIOUS PRIME
For many years I’ve wanted a friendly, menu-driven interface to our Glimmer program, but my research group has never had the resources available to build one. The Geneious Glimmer interface is terrific; it will allow any scientist to find genes in almost any bacterial, viral, or archaeal sequence, without requiring background expertise in Unix command-line programs. I’m also very pleased that Geneious makes Glimmer available across multiple computer platforms, including Windows and Mac.
We’ve been using our Geneious licenses a lot and really like the software. We’ve written several plug-ins ourselves and are using it more and more to analyze our data.
It’s not just about the buttons. From a user’s perspective, Phobos generates annotations, and Geneious handles annotations beautifully. The integration was obvious! And from a technical perspective it was easy to achieve, because it was simple to parse the outputs from Phobos into repeat annotations for the Geneious interface.
TopHat is a robust tool, but it was designed with experienced bioinformatics scientists in mind. Geneious makes TopHat accessible to many more users through the same powerful, intuitive user interface they have with other Geneious analysis tasks.
