on Monday released a new version (2.0) of EnzymeX, a Mac OS X-only program designed to assist molecular biologists in their work with restriction enzymes. The new version touts over 50 new features and enhancements, including support for double digests.
EnzymeX 2.0 — which can determine all the specific properties of enzymes — allows molecular biologists to determine which buffer is most suitable for the two enzymes they want to use in a double digestion. The update displays even more information than before; for instance, the application now discriminates between three types of methylation sensitivity.
Also new in Enzyme 2.0 is the reaction mixer, a method of calculating reaction mixtures. Additionally, there’s a converter for helping convert common molecular biology units.
Enzyme 2.0 requires Mac OS X 10.2 or higher. A single-user license costs US$4.99, and a lab license is $9.99.
