Mek & Tosj have released a new app for Mac users, 4Peaks 1.0. 4Peaks is a utility designed for DNA sequence file visualization and management. The app features direct sequence/translation access and search abilities. According to Mek & Tosj:
Finally a decent DNA sequence viewer for Mac OSX!
4Peaks is a program that help molecular biologists to visualize and edit their DNA sequence files. At last there is a decent solution for analyzing trace files on the MacOSX platform, taking another step away from slow and non-native programs from the MacOS9 period.
Also, 4Peaks supports most commonly used sequence file formats right out of the box, you no longer have to convert them first using AppleScripts or other painstaking methods. Analyzing your sequence was never so much fun!
- Reading and writing of most common trace file formats
- Direct access to both sequence and translation
- Ability to edit and correct the sequence. Keep interesting parts only, or export your data as text or FASTA files
- Quickly search for a sequence or translation, navigate through your file by selecting pieces of either sequence or translation
- And much much more...
