Hello,

I am looking for a free program that runs on vista to draw plasmids. Does anyone know of any free software that can help me.

There are free online tools allowing you to draw vector map.

Most programs used on PCs are not free.

I'm quite fond of PlasmaDNA

Try SnapGene Viewer for Mac and Windows at

http://www.snapgene.com/products/snapgene_viewer/.

It's free, and it has a nice modern interface for drawing and annotating plasmid maps, visualizing ORFs, designing primers, and viewing and editing sequence trace files.

Gene Construction Kit® (GCK) is a useful tool for plasmid mapping, cloning simulation, and DNA analysis. It has been consistently reviewed as being one of the easiest to use applications for simulating multi-step cloning operations, and offers extensive flexibility in the graphical formatting of DNA sequences - and - generating those colorful, customized plasmid maps seen in publications (sample attached). You can easily copy and paste grapical maps from GCK to image editing programs, or even create hi-res PDF (Mac) or XPS (Win) exports from within the program. It's been around since the mid-90's, and was one of, if not "the very first software" for performing these types of graphical manipulations of DNA sequence data.

 

More information, and a free demo version is available from the website: http://www.textco.com
