This module allows you to easily manage laboratory plasmids. Due to LabCollector’s extensible customization, you can personalize forms used to enter data by simply adding custom fields which can be searchable and/or mandatory.
Plamids sequences can be mapped with restriction digestion sites.
The Plasmids Module Main Benefits:
- Import data from existing files (Excel, FileMaker, GenBank…)
- Locate strains and cells with precise location
- Create a collaborative database
- Customizable to suit your needs
- Find what you need in seconds
- Link data
- Use internal bioinformatics tools
- Print barcode labels in seconds
- Multi-user environment
- Manage users access permission
A Collaborative Database For Keeping Track Of Your Plasmid Collection
Once data is added, you will be able to assign plasmids main and secondary storage location for efficient tracking. With LabCollector, you can easily create your own collection by simply import sequences from GenBank, upload GenBank files with annotations or integrate your existing files into the plasmids database. After you submit your sequence, you can examine it with bioinformatics tools integrated in LabCollector like a plasmid map editor to draw sequences, a primer anneal detector to visualize where a primer will anneal on your sequence, an ORF viewer to quickly find ORF regions, the Cutter to quickly get the list of all enzyme restriction sites and much more.
Through the plasmids module, you can also link plasmid data to other plasmid records or information in other modules. To easily find interesting plasmids in your collection, you can use the search engine which accepts sequence queries and the annealing search to find matching primers for the plasmid sequence. All LabCollector modules are connected to a barcode label generator providing a quick and easy method to identify plasmids and track them.
