ATUM Support is here to help you with cloning strategies, gene design, bioinformatics
analysis and various molecular biology/biotechnology concerns. Every one in the team
has extensive experience in molecular biology or a related discipline.
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?
For a peer-reviewed and detailed description of Gene Designer and the underlying algorithm please see:
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
