Automatically annotate plasmid maps and expression vectors
Geneious Prime is connected to PlasMapper which allows you to automatically highlight plasmids with common promoters, terminators, cloning sites, restriction sites, reporter genes, affinity tags, selectable marker genes, replication origins and open reading frames.
Codon Optimization Tool
Find rare codons or produce a fully optimized sequence based on a target organism and remove unwanted restriction sites at the same time.
Simulate molecular cloning operations in one-step
In a few clicks you can:
- Ligate multiple fragments together that have matching overhangs
- Insert a fragment of DNA into a vector with matching overhangs
- Simulate restriction cloning
- Simulate conventional PCR
- Simulate InFusion Cloning and Gibson Assembly
- Simulate TOPO cloning
- Simulate Gateway and TOPO cloning
Store and access important restriction enzyme and DNA fragment data
Drag and drop your important data, customize your restriction enzymes lists and display all of the enzymes on your linear or circular DNA fragment-all in real time. Commercially available enzymes including GoldenGate and BioBrick are already stored in Geneious Prime.
Automatically track and store important documentation
Track Cloning operations so changes can be propagated automatically from parents to all descendants.

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.
Coming from the world of Vector NTI, I must tell you that Geneious looks and feel much better!
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 researches and speed up designs, strategies and innovations. And at my lab we are deeply interested not only to continue using this program but to always upgrade to the latest, and improved, releases
