Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Jan 31, 2010

CLC bio's Sequence Viewer is a free tool for basic bioinformatics analysis. It offers many of the features and capabilities of the publisher's high-end science software, such as the ability to perform many bioinformatics analyses, including interactive restriction site analysis, creating and editing alignments, phylogenetics, integrated GenBank searches, and advanced DNA to protein translation. It also carries over the premium utilities' sophisticated data management and exporting capabilities as well as compatibility with a wide range of platforms and file formats. It offers a continuously evolving lab-grade application in a compact, easy-to-use format that can access many integrated research tools and databases.

The program's main interface features the familiar businesslike Windows layout, with a toolbar that lists common menu items such as File, Edit, and Help as well as program-specific menus like Workspace. There's a main pane view and left-hand side panes with tree views of the Navigation Area and Toolbox. Sequence Viewer's standout feature is its views, which clearly depict the results of complex genetic sequences, statistics, and enzyme analysis in colorful graphics that can be exported into a staggering array of formats. It also imports external data. Sophisticated reporting features simplify publishing data in papers.

Sequence Viewer is freeware that works with all recent versions of Windows up to Vista. It's easy to use, but it requires specific knowledge to make proper use of it. For geneticists, biologists, and especially students, however, it's a versatile, compatible lab-grade research tool.
