  • Enhanced RNA-Seq visualizations with custom sorting and filtering options.
  • View and save quality scores and metadata of your NGS raw data files with FastQC reports.
  • Generate Variant Calling Files (VCF) to flag variants in your NGS alignments using SAMtools.
  • Updated version of GSNAP which runs faster and has additional alignment modes.
  • An updated External Data Browser for organizing both DNA-Seq and RNA-Seq projects.
  • Sequencher Connections has improved organization and usability.

Sequencher 5.3 is now available!

Gene Codes announces the release of Sequencher 5.3.  We continue to add more features for Sanger and NGS users including:

  • The Cufflinks suite for RNA-Seq data ÔÇô Our user-friendly interface gives you the power of the command line without the hassle of the command line.
  • Visualization tools for Differential Expression analysis.
  • Enhancements to Sequencher Connections ÔÇô Our visionary tool for running multiple analyses in parallel is now more flexible and customizable. 

Sequencher 5.2.4 is Available!

Gene Codes is proud to announce the release of our most flexible version of Sequencher ever!  Sequencher 5.2.4 combines support for all licensing options whether it's standalone or network, dongle or keyless. 

Network customers using KeyServer now have access to all the latest features:

  • Sequencher Connections - A whole new way to accelerate your analysis!  Perform multiple customized BLAST searches or MUSCLE alignment on single or groups of sequences.  View your results in webpage, text, or XML format all without leaving Sequencher!
  • Use MUSCLE to create phylogenetic trees that can be viewed in multiple formats.
  • BWA reference-guided alignment algorithm for NGS data sets.
  • Added GSNAP flexibility - You now have the ability to capture reads that didn't align, or even to select only reads that didn't align. 

Sequencher 5.1 is Available Now!

Gene Codes announces the release of Sequencher 5.1 DNA analysis software for Sanger or NGS data sets. Some of the new features include:

  • De Novo Alignment for NGS data
  • Multiplex ID Assembly
