Cambridge, United Kingdom – MacVector, Inc. has just released MacVector Free; a free basic edition of the popular sequence analysis application for Macintosh computers. The recently released MacVector 12.7 sees the introduction of a new complimentary basic edition, MacVector Free. MacVector Free includes many of the basic sequence editing, documentation and analysis functions that molecular biologists use on a day to day basis.
With MacVector Free, users can open or download sequences in most sequence formats, edit them, print, copy sequences, modify text and graphics for publication ready figures, and save in any supported format. It will perform simple click cloning operations (although not via the new Cloning Clipboard) to generate new constructs. Entrez and BLAST are available along with the Find functionality. MacVector Free lets users share MacVector files and data with more casual users or collaborators without having to convert sequences into a common format, often losing information in the process.
MacVector Free comes with a perpetual license that can be easily upgraded to enable the more powerful analysis tools which are available in the other editions. MacVector Free is fully supported on Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion to to OS X 10.5 Leopard.
MacVector, Inc’s President, Dr. Kevin Kendall, said “We’re very happy to be able to provide MacVector Free so that even casual users can take advantage of MacVector’s powerful sequence viewing and file format conversion capabilities. MacVector Free should be an essential software tool for any Macintosh-owning molecular biologist.”
