Patent Award

The dynamic drag-and-drop sequence functionality to create genes with Gene Designer has been awarded US Patent 7,805,252. This unique interface technology created by ATUM scientists enables users to quickly represent nucleic acid sequences and to move them around with ease. Why spend money on other software when Gene Designer is better, easier and free?

The DNA design tool for tomorrow’s scientists

The ideal software developed to design sequences de novo can easily be incorporated into Synthetic Biology, Systems Biology, Bioengineering and BioInformatics curricula. Gene Designer 2.0 encompasses a complete and visually rich set of tools to bring student's creative ideas to completion.

Students can create and complete projects which capture the entire gene design process in one efficient application, using a range of design tools purposely built for the task:

  • Intelligent, fast, and easy-to-use algorithms for in silico cloning, codon optimization, back translation and primer design
  • Graphically rich molecular view to display, annotate and edit your constructs
  • Remove or add restriction sites, sequence motifs
  • Recode open reading frames, check translation frames and fusion junctions
  • Powerful, intuitive drag-and-drop interface for moving sequence elements within or between constructs
  • Cloning tool assembles an in silico clone that students can drop directly into their projects, ideal for BioBricks and vector assembly
