Free Bioinformatics Software
Not a demo. Not scaled down. No spyware. No need to register. Yet still a wide variety of features available - and - free!
CLC Free Workbench creates a software environment enabling users to make a large number of bioinformatics analyses, combined with smooth data management, and excellent graphical viewing and output options.
Some of the many bioinformatics analyses:
• Interactive restriction site analysis
• Creating and editing alignments
• Integrated GenBank searches
• Advanced DNA to Protein translation
The software package is a community edition, available for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux. Download and use is absolutely free of charge.
Integration and platform independence
CLC Free Workbench is fully integrated with all commercial products from CLC bio. That means data can be exchanged seamlessly between all workbenches, and viewed and handled according to the features available in the current workbench.
The exchange of data is of course platform independent, so mixed environments with both Mac, Windows, and Linux computers is handled without any problems! Data exchange has never been this easy and convenient.
This integrated workbench platform enables a modern workflow, where you don't need commercial licenses on all computers in order to work together - simply focus your attention and investments specifically where they're needed, and not only on an overall basis.
Handling of different file formats
CLC Free Workbench is very versatile when it comes to importing and exporting both data and graphics files. To name a few, you can export graphics as PNG, PDF, or EPS. Import data from Vector NTI, CLUSTAL W, or DNA Strider. And among others GenBank, Fasta, Swiss-Prot, UniProt and EMBL formats are supported for both im- and export.
