What is GeneStudio?
GeneStudio Pro is a modern suite of molecular biology applications for the Windows platform built on our sequence format conversion engine, SeqVerter. All manipulations with sequences of different formats are thus seamless and transparent for the user. In addition, GeneStudio Pro is very well integrated with the information available for molecular biologists on the Internet (please make sure to read the NCBI Disclaimer and copyright information before using Entrez and BLAST).
A convenient interface to Entrez allows the user to search GenBank and retrieve sequences of choice directly into a sequence alignment or a contig assembly project. BLAST searches can be done through a simple right click on a sequence or on a selected fragment of a sequence. BLAST results are retrieved and stored on the user’s computer and can be viewed at any time.
GeneStudio Pro has an intuitive, user-friendly interface; most operations are done through drag-and-drop operations or through simple, uncluttered menus. In comparison to available command-line programs, Web-based utilities or programs accessed from a UNIX machine through an X-Windows interface, GeneStudio Pro can be mastered in a very short time.
