Become a beta tester for the new GeneAssist add-on


Help us improve your user experience! Become a GeneAssist beta tester for eLabNext. 

GeneAssist is designed to assist molecular biologists in expanding their workflow capabilities with sequence analyses, annotation, tracking, and reporting. eLabNext is currently seeking users interested in becoming beta testers of this add-on with the intention of collecting feedback for feature improvements. As beta testers, users will receive an extended 1-year free trial of GeneAssist. At its full release, GeneAssist will be offered as a paid add-on. 

If you are interested in becoming a beta tester, please contact us. 

GeneAssist Top Features – Overview

1). Seamlessly integrated with eLabNext

  • The file is saved in a GeneAssist section and a preview of GeneAssist is shown while the user is not working on it.
  • Users may now create a GeneAssist section in an experiment.

2). Plasmid visualization

  • The data file is now visualized as a plasmid. This shows all features, primers, open reading frames, and restriction enzymes which makes it easy to visualize the parts most relevant to your research.

3). Gel electrophoresis

  • By cutting your sequence with restriction enzymes, users get different fragments that are often verified with gel electrophoresis.
  • GeneAssist provides a visualization of the gel electrophoresis with different markers.
  • The gel can show one or more multiple reactions in one view.

4). Easily cut molecules with certain restriction enzyme, then apply the results to new molecules

  • When adding one or more restriction enzymes to your tube, users may directly see how many cuts the restriction enzyme will make in the molecule(s).
  • Results show all fragments that have arisen from the cutting reaction.

5). Visualize both the Linear and Circular sequences

  • When making a selection, or selecting a feature of interest, the views are synchronized.

6). Add custom features

  • Add your own custom features in the sequence by hovering over the end of your selection and clicking ‘+ Feature’.

7). Work on multiple reactions at the same time

  • Multiple tubes can be created to perform a reaction. They may be opened simultaneously or collapsed for future use.

8). Multiple import/export options

  • When starting a new GeneAssist section, you may import data from different formats such as snapgene (.dna), GenBank (.gb), CloneManager (.cm5), and fasta (.fasta).
  • Molecules may be exported as an image (.png).

9). Filter the elements to the needs of your lab

  • Visualizations are made to meet the needs of users. For example: if the user is only interested in the restriction enzymes that can cut the molecule, the user may disable all other visualization options.
  • It is also possible to only show/hide specific features.

10). Sequence visualization shows, in great detail, how the DNA/RNA strand is constructed

  • Linear View provides more detailed information, such as the actual sequence.
  • When hovering over an enzyme, users can see the cutting sites.
