pLOT 1.0.15a


pLOT 1.0.15a fixes a bug in the virtual gel window that could crash if no RE present.  It also adds support for opening files with linux/unix/mac which often mark the end of lines with a character/combination different from Windows files.  Drawing speed has been updated to be faster on slower computers or in instances where there are many labels.

Double clicking the plasmid name now brings up the plasmid name/comment window.

Tab separated variable (*.tsv) files can now be opened to import primer databases.  A few final touches are needed before the comma separated variable files importing feature is available.

Importing primers in tab separated files.

From Excel, choose to save your database as a tab separated variable file.

Open the Primer Manager window (Ctrl+P) and click the “Import Primers from .CSV” tab.  Click the “…” button and select the tab separated variable file.The preview window will populate.

Adjust the column boxes to set the appropriate columns that specify the primer name and sequence (required) and optionally the comments column, minimum annealing length, project category, and lab storage location.  If your TSV file has column headers, click the “This file has headers” checkbox to skip the first row.  Click “Import Primers” to import your primers to the pLOT database.
