SimVector now includes support for loading Vector NTI® DNA (*.gb) files. Simply select File > Open > Sequence > From File and browse to the file location, no need to import or archive files. SimVector loads the sequence along with the analysis results such as restriction analysis, ORF search and component fragment information. The information is presented under separate tabs: features under the Feature tab, enzyme information under the Enzyme tab, ORF information under the ORF tab and component fragment information under the Note tab.
If you are looking for an alternative to Vector NTI®, you have one right here and at a discounted price too! Vector NTI® users can get a discount of $50 on the purchase of SimVector. To get the discount, all you need to do is to send a copy of the license you received from Invitrogen along with your purchase order for SimVector to email@example.com or call us at 650-856-2703.

Whether you are a catalog company selling engineered plasmids or are performing restriction analysis for recombinant cloning experiments, SimVector will help you simulate the experiments and create publication quality plasmid maps from start to finish. Use the software to draw circular and linear plasmid maps in a variety of colors, patterns, fonts and line types. Display enzyme names in two font styles with the bacterium portion in Italics, as is traditional. Use even more than one font style and color in a single textual word anywhere in the plasmid map including in the feature annotations.
Export plasmid maps in EPS format for Adobe Illustrator 10, SVG for Microsoft Power Point 2002 or as ready-to-host web pages. Choose JPEG, TIFF and PNG formats for export.
Vector catalogs generally display MCS's in a unique format, with enzymes one above the other in a vertical list. SimVector identifies the MCS's by interpreting GenBank header annotations or you can specify them manually. It then draws them in this special format we call the "Bracket View". It even has the smarts to list only the enzymes that cut within the MCS and nowhere else.
