Making restriction enzyme cloning easier with MacVector 17’s Restriction Enzyme Picker.

We’re in the final stages of testing our latest release, MacVector 17, which will be released in January.  Here’s a preview of just one of the new tools within our most feature packed release yet.

MacVector 17’s brand new Restriction Enzyme Picker is a new floating tool for selecting and filtering Restriction Enzymes to simplify the identification of useful enzyme cut sites. It initially presents you with a list of all available sites in a sequence. However, you can filter on many attributes, such as number of cuts, 5’ or 3’ overhangs and blunt ends.  What’s more is that you can take a set of cut sites from one sequence as the input to digests of other sequences for easier planning of construct workflows.

The Restriction Enzyme Picker gives you an interactive way to quickly show what enzymes are present in your sequence.

MacVector 17 will be released during January 2019. It contains brand new tools for comparing genomes, making restriction enzyme cloning easier, automated design of Gibson/LIC cloning strategies, highlighting assembly issues, comparing multiple sequence datasets against a single reference and making plasmid maps even more beautiful, by displaying your own primer binding sites! Finally MacVector 17 supports macOS Mojave’s Dark Mode to aid concentration on those late night primer design sessions!
