Import metadata onto sequences and other documents
Seamlessly attach new data from downstream analyses or other applications onto your sequences or update document fields, by importing columns from a CSV/TSV format spreadsheet onto documents that are already in Geneious Prime.
Smart NGS File Importing
Drop any assortment of SAM, BAM, GFF, BED, and VCF files into Geneious to import in one easy step, even if you have a mixture of different samples and reference sequences.
Wide ranging file format compatibility from FASTA to VectorNTI
Have data from multiple sources, including different sequencing machines and other sequence analysis software? Loading into Geneious Prime is easy with a simple drag and drop import of a vast range of formats.
Dedicated importer for Vector NTI Express and Advance databases preserves metadata, full database structure including subsets, and lineage information.

I really like your program. I first got it to make alignment and trees of my sequences and it works well for those purposes. But it was a real lifesaver a few weeks ago when I lost my academic license to Vector NTI and couldn’t access any of my plasmids!! But I noticed I could import my database into Geneious and I was back in business.
Coming from the world of Vector NTI, I must tell you that Geneious looks and feel much better!
It is so easy to search and then import GenBank files along with their annotations. The ability to stack information from various sources onto the same display for comparison purposes is invaluable. This may be in the form of multiple alignments or a a GenBank BLAST file with annotations superimposed on top of a protein sequence with all of the predicted protein properties displayed.
