Vastly enhancing sequence alignments.

DNASTAR® has announced the release of Lasergene 11.2. As the third release within the Lasergene 11 series this summer, the primary focus for Lasergene 11.2 is to incorporate new sequence alignment methods and tools in the MegAlign Pro application.

Lasergene, which has been the most published sequence analysis software in peer reviewed journals for each of the past 28 years, already included a large number of sequence alignment methods.

With the release of Lasergene 11.2, DNASTAR now additionally supports Clustal Omega, Mauve, a fully integrated Muscle alignment algorithm, and enhanced phylogenetic trees.

Tom Schwei, Vice President and General Manager of DNASTAR, commented, “As 2013 began, we decided to break from our traditional semi-annual software release process and, instead, issue several upgrades to our software serially, with each release having a different primary focus. Lasergene 11 introduced the DNASTAR Cloud, supplementing our traditional desktop computer software by making all DNASTAR software available on the Amazon cloud. Lasergene 11.1 introduced NovaFold, our new best-in-class protein structure prediction software. Both releases also included significant enhancements to our next-generation sequencing software workflows. Now, Lasergene 11.2, the final installment of this summer’s series of releases, introduces significant new capability in DNA and protein sequence alignments. We will continue to develop our software’s capabilities in each of these areas with additional software upgrades beginning early next year. We are very pleased to respond to the needs of the market by maintaining our long-standing tradition of supporting life scientists with continually improving, outstanding, easy to use software.”
