Gene Codes Corporation Announces Version 4.6 of Sequencher, its DNA Sequencing Analysis Software Program for Mac and Windows



ANN ARBOR, Mich., March 15 / -- Gene Codes Corporation, a leading bioinformatics software developer, announces the immediate availability of a new version of Sequencher, it's award-winning DNA sequence analysis and assembly program. Version 4.6 continues the tradition of responding to customer needs by adding new capabilities to Sequencher, providing state-of-the-art software analysis tools that are easy to learn and use, and helping life sciences researchers work more effectively.

Expanding on the comprehensive collection of sequence analysis tools already present in Sequencher, version 4.6 adds several significant new features. The Variance Table allows rapid and easy identification of SNPs and heterozygotes across large collections of sequences. The integration of GenBank features is also significantly improved, letting the user completely customize how features are imported and displayed on their sequences. Additional new or improved features include expanded handling of confidence scores throughout the program, improved protein translation capabilities, and extensive user customization, so the user can adapt Sequencher to his or her personal working style.

Howard Cash, Gene Codes Corporation founder and President, states that, "Sequencher has long been the standard by which other DNA sequence analysis programs are measured, and this new release raises that standard even higher. We continue on the path we've traveled for more than 18 years, of listening to our customers and providing them with the best available tools to increase their work efficiency and improve the accuracy of their results."

Doron Behar, MD, PhD, a scientist working on Mitochondrial DNA at Family Tree DNA, says, "We are using Sequencher to analyze thousands and thousands of samples every month. We can't afford to look at each sample one by one, but neither can the quality be compromised. The Variance Table allows us to import all data into one file. This makes everything easier and faster. Sequencher lets us analyze more samples in a single month. Sequencher also has very good technical support. We did not just buy software, we also bought access to expertise."
