Phoretix 2D Advanced


Nonlinear Dynamics of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK, said it is planning an early September release of version 6 of its Phoretix 2D Advanced software for 2D electrophoresis gel analysis.

New features in version 6 include error bars on histograms for averaged measurements; a triangulation mode for coordinate mapping; and the capability to include customized algorithms.


An upgrade to version 5.2.071 of dnatools, a software package for sequence management and analysis developed by the department of yeast genetics at the Carlsberg Research Center, is available at

New functions include an automated Blast search on local single or multiple databases or by e-mail on the NCBI Blast server, improved dot matrix DNA and protein sequence comparison, and an EST clustering function with several options for determining identity or overlaps

The new version of the software also enables sequence extraction from chromatograms.
