For researchers researching in the field of molecular biology, it is inevitable to use software tools in their experiments. Let’s see some of the common ones used in different procedures.
Molecular Cloning: SnapGene
SnapGene is the first molecular biology software that is easier to use than pen and paper. Now every DNA construct made in labs can be documented in a rich electronic format. SnapGene Viewer is revolutionary software that allows molecular biologists to create, browse, and share richly annotated DNA sequence files up to 1 Gb in length. Thanks to the free SnapGene Viewer, the files can be shared with colleagues around the world.
SnapGene can be used in in-fusion® cloning, gibson assembly®, restriction cloning， PCR & mutagenesis， automatic documentation, antibody sequencing, etc.
Literature reading: ReadCube
Different from EndNote (a quotation-based management software), ReadCube is a literature-based document management software. It can automatically identify information in PDF documents, such as topics, authors, abstracts and citations. In terms of the life science literature, the data of ReadCube is quite accurate. You can find the link to download the full text of the. You can also access to the full-text database through the university library agency. In addition, according to your literature database, ReadCube will recommend you literatures that are most relevant to your research interest.
Experiment recording: Microsoft Office OneNote
Microsoft OneNote is a computer program for free-form information gathering and multi-user collaboration. It gathers users' notes (handwritten or typed), drawings, screen clippings and audio commentaries. Notes can be shared with other OneNote users over the Internet or a network. OneNote is available as a part of Microsoft Office and Windows 10. It is also available as a free standalone application for Windows, macOS, Windows RT, Windows Phone, iOS and Android. A web-based version of OneNote is provided as part of OneDrive or Office Online; this version enables users to edit notes via a web browser.
Creative Biolabs is a biotech company specialized in providing researchers with custom biotechnology and pharmaceutical services that cover the full scope of biotechnology needs of early drug discovery and development, including phage display, antibody discovery, manufacturability assessment, etc.
