Easily create and share workflows based on your data and analysis. Try some of the built-in workflows or design your own.

Gibson Assembly

One-step cloning of fragments using Gibson assembly including automated primer design and batch cloning/shuffling

Codon Optimization

Find rare codons or produce a fully optimized sequence based on a target organism and remove unwanted restriction sites at the same time.

TOPO Cloning

One-step cloning of fragments into a vector using TOPO

Copy and Paste Annotations

Annotations are now maintained when copying sequences! Highlight part of a sequence, copy with ctrl+c and then paste it using ctrl+v into another location and the annotations will be preserved.

Better Coverage Analysis

Get more meaning from your alignments with added visualization of coverage.
