BioLabDonkey is one time purchase app with lifetime updates including new features.

This program is aimed at researches in the molecular biology field for use in their everyday routine work. It is a suite of the bioinformatic tools for the analysis of DNA, RNA, and protein sequences, as well as images of gels, blots, cells and colonies. It also provides a set of useful calculators for molecular biology.

The user interface was developed around a minimalistic design and ease of use, such as: direct access to functions in less than three clicks, essential functionality with a minimum of settings, minimisation of windows (uncluttered screen).

The program includes custom algorithms for: the protein/DNA sequences alignment, protein secondary structures prediction, RNA-seq differential expression.

- Open files with the extensions: .txt, .rtf, .fasta, .fas, .fa, .fsa, .ffn, .fna, .seq, .ape, .gb, .gbk, .ab1, .bldna, .xdna, .dna, .faa, .seq, .gp, .blprotein, .fastq, .aln, .phylip, .blalignment, .pdb, .jpg, .tiff, .png. 

The program reads files created by Serial Cloner(.xdna), DNA Strider(.xdna), SnapGene(.dna) and ApE (.ape) programs.

- Save files with the extensions: .txt, .rtf, .fasta, .fas, .fa, .fsa, .ffn, .fna, .seq, .gb, .gbk, .ab1, .bldna, .faa, .seq, .gp, .blprotein, .blalignment, .pdf, .eps, jpg, png;

- RNA-Seq DE: genes and miRNAs differential expression;
- Calculators for: Dilution, Molarity, Ligation, SDS PAG, Ammonium sulfate, Bacteria growth;
- Nucleic acid OD conversion;
- Units conversion for DNA and protein;
- Colonies/Cells/Spots counting;
- Analysis of Gel/Blot photo and calculation of relative fold-change in selected Gel/Blot bands/spots;
- Image adjustment and labels.

Big on promise, lacks execution

I want to thank the developer for trying to provide a comprehensive program that will run on OS Catalina (10.15.5). Unfortunately, this program did not run well, crashing almost immediately. I hope it will continue to be improved until it is a viable alternative to Serial Cloner (which does not run on Catalina).

I'm sorry, but I don't remember exactly what I did to cause the crash, except that it might have involved trying to work with multiple sequences (alignment).

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your response. Please, let me know by e-mail or on the feedback page of the app support webpage what you did when app has crashed ! I need this info, since for this app version I don’t have any crash logs report. I will resolve the crash as soon as possible. 

(Update. I hope you are using the latest app version - 1.10. I have tested the alignment function for this version once again with multiple DNA or protein sequences. I can’t get the crash issue. Which other function could you used to get the crash ? )
