ChromasPro is suitable for sequencing projects up to a few megabases, and basic sequence editing and analysis. It is able to assemble data from 454 and Illumina next-generation sequencers, with up to 100,000 sequences if 2 Gb RAM is available. ChromasPro has the following features:

  • Open and save sequences in Applied Biosystems, Staden Chromatogram (SCF), MegaBace (.esd), 454 SFF, FASTA, FASTQ, EMBL, GenBank, SwissProt, GenPept, GCG RSF and plain text formats.
  • Assemble overlapping sequences into a consensus and automatically display ambiguities for editing.
  • Use quality data to automatically remove low quality sequence and improve sequence assembly.
  • View Genescan genotype files (only older format files are currently supported).
  • Generate restriction site and fragment maps, and list cutters, non-cutters and fragments.
  • Map open reading frames, aided by a G+C frame plot, and translate ORFs with one click.
  • Print chromatograms, restriction site and fragment maps, and open reading frame maps.
  • Perform nucleotide and protein BLAST searches through the NCBI web site.
  • Perform multiple alignments by interfacing with ClustalW.
  • Reverse & complement sequences and chromatograms.
  • Search for sequences by exact matching or optimal alignment.
  • Display translations when editing nucleotide sequences.
  • Perform reverse translations and plot nucleotide degeneracy.
  • Plot hydrophilicity and antigenicity of proteins.
  • Copy an image of a chromatogram section for pasting into documents or presentations.
