In this edition of our newsletter, we are sharing the most-viewed DNASTAR resources of 2021 and a link to our most recent webinar.
We don’t yet have snow ❄️ on the ground here in Madison, Wisconsin, but the birds outside my office window are eating over three pounds (1.5 kg) of birdseed, suet and nuts each day. As nature’s best meteorologists are are preparing for snow, we at DNASTAR are preparing for an exciting 2022 ahead!
But first of all, we’d like to reflect on some of the highlights from 2021.

What were our most-viewed resources in 2021?
As a DNASTAR newsletter subscriber, you know that we often link to our new blog posts, ebooks and webinars. We just compiled the year-end statistics, and wanted to share our Best of 2021?:
The most popular blog post was How to Create the Best Phylogenetic Tree for Your Data Using MegAlign Pro. Continuing in the theme of “phylogenetics,” more of you attended our 2021 webinar, Master Phylogenetic Tree Creation & Optimization with MegAlign Pro, than any other event in the twelve years DNASTAR has held webinars.
Based on your love for MegAlign Pro, we’ll be sure to create additional helpful resources for this application in 2022.
We also released our first ebook, 7 Steps for Human Variant Analysis (and How to Automate Them!), which has far succeeded our expectation in the number of downloads. We’re so glad you’re finding it useful! We have two more ebooks in progress on different topics and you folks will be the first to hear about them when they’re ready to view.
On-demand Lasergene webinar
While we covered many specialized topics and workflows in webinars throughout the year, we went “back to basics” for our final webinar of 2021. In ⭐Getting Started with Lasergene⭐, DNASTAR’s Thomas Leary showed what each Lasergene application does and how some of its popular workflows operate. If you missed the live event, you can now watch it at any time that’s convenient for you.
If you’re an experienced Lasergene user, but only use one or two applications, this webinar is a terrific way for you to learn how to benefit from the other applications in your Lasergene package.
Happy holiday season from DNASTAR!
As 2021 ends, this is the last DNASTAR newsletter for the year. We thank you for your support over the past year, and we look forward to providing you with innovative software solutions and services in the year to come. We wish you a joyous winter season and Happy New Year 2022! ?
