    SnapGene Viewer vs 4peaks opinions
    pros, cons and recent comments

    4peaks is a very friendly user interface with the ability to import traces in a .ab1 format. I was unable to find that in SnapGene Viewer. For my purposes, it was more than what was necessary which made it difficult to find what I needed to use it.
