Software for Importing and Editing Unusual Sequence File Types

EditSeq is a legacy application that has largely been replaced by SeqBuilder. However, we still provide EditSeq with every Lasergene system, primarily as a utility for importing and editing some less common file formats. With EditSeq, you can manually edit sequence, comments, and annotations, conveniently separated into three panes. Available functions include reverse complement, invert, translate, back-translate, and ORF identification.

Features & Highlights


Entering Sequences and Creating Features

  • Open a saved DNA or protein sequence or download a sequence directly from NCBI using accession numbers, BLAST, or Entrez text searches
  • Proofread a manually-entered sequence by having it read back to you in musical tones or letters
  • Create features using NCBI's official Genbank annotation field names. Each feature key offers qualifier or /note fields which can be used to input additional remarks about the feature. Feature coordinates update automatically when you edit your sequence


Sequence Analysis

  • Identify ORFs by specifying start codons, stop codons and minimum ORF sizes
  • Summarize the number and composition of bases or a region of a protein
  • Control and customize expression-specific genetic codes for translating and back-translating sequences
