Plasmid drawing, restriction analysis and cloning experiment designing software
|1. Vector Graphics: Generate and export plasmid maps in vector graphic format, SimVector is one of the few programs to export images in vector graphic format that can be further manipulated in Adobe Illustrator 10 and Microsoft PowerPoint 2002.|
|2. Design Cloning Experiments: Design Gateway® Cloning, TA Cloning and Restriction cloning experiments and save laboratory resources.|
|3. Full Control: Work with plasmid (vectors) as long as 150 kb to draw circular or linear maps. Choose from several fonts, sizes, line widths, fill patterns and colors to enhance your drawings.|
|4. Flexible Output: Export web ready image in JPEG, TIF, PNG or BMP formats.|
|5. Analysis: Comprehensive enzyme and feature analysis.|
|6. Filtering and Sorting: Powerful filtering of enzymes by properties to create a custom set. Sort restriction maps, features by any property with a click of a button. Create custom enzyme sets for repeated analysis.|
|7. Project Management: Use the project functionality to effectively manage your experimental data.|
|8. Ready to Go: Access Entrez to download vector sequences. Feature annotations in the file header are immediately depicted on the graphical map.|
|9. Intuitive Interface: Work with a biologist designed intuitive interface for cloning simulation and sequence analysis.|
|10. Continuous Improvement: We continuously improve the software based on insights into user needs and customer feedback.|
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.
