October 15, 2020 Newsletter – Choosing a Multiple Sequence Alignment Method, SeqBuilder Pro Webinar Next Week
We hope this month’s newsletter finds you healthy and well! We’ll be covering one of our latest blog posts, our upcoming conference and webinar, as well as a preview of Lasergene 17.2.
Choosing a multiple sequence alignment method in MegAlign Pro
You likely know how hard it can be to choose the right multiple sequence alignment algorithm for your data. That’s why it’s important to try the different gene-level alignment algorithms and settings offered in MegAlign Pro to learn which ones produce the best result for your data. MegAlign Pro offers four popular algorithms that work for both nucleotide and protein sequences: Clustal Omega, Clustal W, MAFFT and MUSCLE. In this blog post, learn about two solutions for choosing the best “starting” alignment algorithm for your needs.
DNASTAR at ASHG 2020 Virtual Meeting
From October 27-30, DNASTAR will be at the ASHG 2020 Virtual Meeting at our virtual booth to answer your questions and to demonstrate our genomics and transcriptomics workflows. We’d love to hear about your research and demonstrate workflows that may help. To meet with us, simply send an e-mail email@example.com to request an appointment.
Webinar next week: Learn SeqBuilder Pro Workflows
On Thursday, October 22, join DNASTAR’s Sales Manager Brian Anderson for a one-hour webinar on Lasergene’s foundation application, SeqBuilder Pro. Brian’s live demonstration of the software will cover a variety of tasks, including personalizing the layout, creating primers, auto-annotating plasmids and other sequences, verifying clones, and much more. To see a full list, visit the events page on our website.
Lasergene 17.2 Coming Soon!
We have been hard at work on updating Lasergene Lasergene and plan to release Lasergene 17.2 in the coming weeks! Based on your valuable feedback, we’ve improved workflows for multiple sequence alignments, phylogenetic analysis, Sanger sequence assembly, and NGS alignments and analysis.
