1 Only zip files containing ABI, SCF3, Lasergene protein or Lasergene DNA files. All other files will be ignored.
2 Multiple Lasergene DNA sequence files can be created by EditSeq, SeqMan Pro, and MegAlign.
3 FOF can not contain reference to another multiple sequence file format such as FastA, DNA* mseq, or Zip.
4 Program will translate to BAF.
5 Referred to collectively as "Lasergene Documents" in "Files of Type" or "Show pull-down menus".
7 GenBank formatted features will be parsed.
8 Through "drag and drop" only. These files are not supported through the menu system.
9 Projects or files must contain protein sequence data.
10Only the sequence, features and comments of the file will be read in.
11Only DNA sequences will be read in.
12Only read in Macintosh.
13Lasergene does not support ABI files without base calls.
14Protean 3D supports version 3.2 of PDB files.
