Any free software for drawing genes? - (Jan/30/2012 )

I am looking for a simple and free software for publication-quality visualization of genes in the correct scale. Essentially, I need to present a gene with all its introns and exons and promoter region. Also, I need to add some annotations to it. This can be done by powerpoint, but I thought there might be a better solution.

thanks

there are too many better solutions but they are not free!

GenePalette is free AFAIK. And good.

vector NTI was free for academic users.

You can check out this site:

Haven't used it myself, so I don't know how user-friendly it is ...

Plasm comes to my mind.
Try here or here. There are also lots of other free programs that might work for this problem.
AFAIR Vector NTI isn't free anymore...but too long ago that I used it.

You can use USSC Genome broswer to export the gene structure as PostScript file, then edit it in illustrator or similar programs that can handle PostScript.

SnapGene Viewer will do what you want:

It's free, and works on both Mac and Windows.
