MacVector is a sequence analysis application for Macintosh computers that lets you manipulate, document and analyze DNA and protein sequences. You can use MacVector to create great looking plasmid maps, construct vectors and clones with a few simple clicks, design primers, align proteins, assemble sequences or even reconstruct phylogenetic relationships. MacVector is simple enough for undergraduate molecular biology students to use, but powerful enough to satisfy the demands of the most experienced principle investigators. MacVector is used by researchers in every major worldwide institution and has been cited in thousands of publications. If you are engaged in molecular biology research and own a Macintosh computer - you need MacVector.
The trial version includes the Assembler module that lets you run de novo assemblies of both traditional Sanger ("ABI") sequences and fastq/fasta formatted Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data using either the phrap or Velvet assembly algorithms. You can also run NGS reference alignments using the popular Bowtie algorithm.
