Plasmid Maps

Plasmid maps are graphical representation of plasmids, that show the locations of major identifiable landmarks on DNA like restriction enzyme sites, gene of interest, plasmid name and length etc.

Draw Plasmid Maps With SimVector

SimVector is an exceptional tool to draw publication quality plasmid maps. The graphics can then be enhanced with patterns, styles, lines, and colors. SimVector generates plasmid map images in vector graphic format for Adobe Illustrator 10 and Microsoft PowerPoint 2002.

Using SimVector you can transform GenBank annotations to graphical features (linear and circular sequence maps)

Definition of Plasmid

A self-replicating extra-chromosomal element, usually a small segment of duplex DNA found in some bacterial cells. Plasmids are used as a vector for the introduction of new genes into bacteria, allowing foreign "recombinant" DNA to be recognized by a cell's protein-making machinery.

Draw Exceptional Publication Quality Plasmid Maps

Whether you are a catalog company selling engineered plasmids or are performing restriction analysis for recombinant cloning experiments, SimVector will help you simulate the experiments and create publication quality plasmid maps from start to finish. Use the software to draw circular and linear plasmid maps in a variety of colors, patterns, fonts and line types. Display enzyme names in two font styles with the bacterium portion in Italics, as is traditional. Use even more than one font style and color in a single textual word anywhere in the plasmid map including in the feature annotations.

Export plasmid maps in EPS format for Adobe Illustrator 10, SVG for Microsoft Power Point 2002 or as ready-to-host web pages. Choose JPEG, TIFF and PNG formats for export.

Multiple Cloning Site (MCS) Display is Unique to SimVector

Vector catalogs generally display MCS's in a unique format, with enzymes one above the other in a vertical list. SimVector identifies the MCS's by interpreting GenBank header annotations or you can specify them manually. It then draws them in this special format we call the "Bracket View". It even has the smarts to list only the enzymes that cut within the MCS and nowhere else.
