Geneious is an absolutely beautiful package to work with. We love it and we are telling everyone about it.
Geneious cannot be overestimated! A (work) life without Geneious is no longer possible – it feels dark, cold and hostile…
Geneious has done a great deal for our lab, and I think it adds incredible value for labs with a mixture of wet and dry folks or those doing lots of cloning like ours.
I find that Geneious is more than an invaluable tool for any modern molecular lab, it is an engine by itself that drives all our research and speeds up design, strategy and innovation.
Geneious is the perfect combination of ease-of-use and bioinformatic refinement.
