Gene Codes Corporation Announces Version 4.8 of Sequencher Software for DNA Sequence Assembly & Analysis

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Oct. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Gene Codes Corporation, a leading bioinformatics software developer, announced the immediate availability of the next version of Sequencher, its award-winning Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) sequence assembly and analysis program.

Researchers in academic labs and pharmaceutical companies around the world study DNA, which contains the essential genetic instructions key to an organism's growth and development, in hopes of discovering the causes of disease, and the development of novel treatments or diagnostics, and Sequencher is a key tool in their research. Version 4.8 continues Gene Codes tradition of providing DNA assembly software that is easy to learn, fast to use, and powerful enough to handle virtually any DNA sequencing need.

Among the new features in version 4.8 are improvements to the Variance Table tool, introduced in version 4.6, which allows researchers to quickly and easily find DNA mutations and Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) in their sequences. SNPs are single nucleotide changes in the DNA associated with diversity and certain diseases. Sequencher 4.8 now has the ability to filter the range of sequences examined and along with the new Translated Variance Table functionality provide a powerful way to focus on only those DNA sequence changes that result in changes in protein coding. Additional new features in Sequencher 4.8 include additional enhancements to GenBank feature handling, new contextual menus, and four new reporting options that help researchers save and present their results along with supporting data.

David Adams M.D Ph.D., a Clinical Investigator and Sequencher 4.8 Beta tester said, "Sequencher 4.8 contains a welcome new feature that keeps track of protein and cDNA numbering in DNA assemblies. This ability greatly simplifies the task of comparing your experimental data to a genomic DNA reference when looking for mutations or other changes. This feature alone reinforces Sequencher as one of the premier tools for sequence analysis."

Howard Cash, Gene Codes Corporation founder and President, said, "With each new version of Sequencher, we continue to refine a product that so many biologists around the world rely on for their daily DNA sequence assembly needs. By adding key features requested by our customers, we've made Sequencher 4.8 even more powerful without sacrificing the ease of use for which we're famous."

More information about Sequencher v 4.8 is available from Gene Codes Corporation through the website at, or by email at Current Sequencher users can upgrade for free, or at reduced cost. Please contact your sales representative at (734) 769-7249, or (800) 497-4939 for details.
