Vector NTI from Invitrogen - (Oct/05/2009 )

We are trying to decide if we should buy this program, does anyone have any exprerience using this software? Is it worth the money, or can someone recommend alternative programs with similar features to vector NTI.

Thank you very much:)

Vector NTI is a great program. It is very similar to MacVector but for the PC not the Mac.

The only annoying feature with Vector NTi, which may no longer exist, is that when I last used it, you could not visualise the electrophograms and modify sequence data generated from the ABI sequence analysers, which can be easily done by MacVector. We used software that used to cost $60AUS to generate the electrophograms and modify the sequences then import into Vector NTI.

I hope this helps,

I think you should enquire about Genchekô a comprehensive, multi-platform, sequence analysis software package from Ocimum biosolutions.

For DNA manipulations (map creation, primer design, restriction analysis, cloning, PCR, mutagenesis, agarose gel simulation, etc.), an alternative is SnapGene:

It's much more intuitive than Vector NTI.
