ApE, which is free, a great replacement for DNA Strider, and cross-platform.

Check it out : http://www.biology.utah.edu/jorgensen/wayned/ape/

It is clickable from one Window to another, multi-criterion Enzyme choice, colored, … you name it. It just doesn’t help you to find a cloning strategy, but who cares ?

  • Runs in Windows (tested on 98, XP, NT), OS X(10.3, 10.4 and 10.5), and Linux/Unix
  • Highlights restriction sites in the editing window
  • Accurately reflects Dam/Dcm blocking of enzyme sites
  • Highlights text using pre-defined and custom feature libraries
  • Shows translation, Tm, %GC, ORF of selected DNA in real-time
  • Reads DNA Strider, Fasta, Genbank and EMBL files
  • Saves files as DNA Strider-compatible or Genbank file format
  • Highlights and draws graphic maps using feature annotations from genbank and embl files
  • Directly BLASTs selected sequence at NCBI or wormbase

    Thanks for the information provided by Dr.Guillaume Stahl.

    Have fun.
