DNAStar Lasergene 14

DNAStar has launched Lasergene 14 software. The update includes three new applications: GenVision Pro, a comprehensive genome browser; NovaDock, a protein-protein docking application; and NovaFold Antibody, a specific antibody structure prediction program. It also includes enhancements to virtual cloning with three new cloning methods, newly integrated combined next-generation sequencing workflows, enhancements to the de novo transcriptome workflow introduced with Lasergene 13, and a workflow in support of Sanger validation of NGS data, the company said.
