Does anyone know of a software to manage sequences/restriction sites/primer design for Mac that is affordable (for a phd student) and similar to MacVector?

I'm doing my thesis in a chemistry institute and there isn't really anyone to ask about molecular genetics (i'm the only one doing this stuff..) plus if there's anyone they will be using PCs almost certainly.

Back when I worked for a pharmaceutical company (5 years ago) we used MacVector, so that's the software I know how to use.
Any input/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Often I feel like I have no one to ask because of this research environment i'm based in. :)


Thanks a lot!!

Its been a while since I used MacVector (thats the one they didn't update for OS X right?) so I don't remember everything it can do, but a couple of programs that are FREE and I use alot are Serial Cloner and especially EnzymeX ..... you should be able to find these no problem and they are both pretty nice.

Thanks, I've been using EnzymeX since I posted my message yesterday and It looks good except that it doesn't play well with protein sequences.
Will give serial cloner a try too!

thanks a lot

You might want to give BxSeqTools a try also. It requires registration, but is free and can be used on PC or Mac since its web-based. Great for storage, sharing, mapping, primer design, and is fully integrated with GeneBank.

Although a bit slow to work with, but I have found 'Gentle' (http://gentle.magnusmanske.de/) to be a very useful software with lots of features.

SnapGene Viewer (free for Mac and Windows) has a nice modern interface for making plasmid maps with features and restriction sites, and for designing primers. You can show protein sequences associated with translated features.

The full SnapGene software includes tools for simulating cloning and PCR.
