CLC Main Workbench creates a software environment enabling users to make a large number of advanced protein sequence analyses, combined with smooth data management, and excellent graphical viewing and output options.

CLC Main Workbench is available on Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows platforms.

Main features:

  • Project and data management:
  • Full integration of data input, data management, calculation results, and data export
  • Detailed history log
  • All types of files can be saved in local projects, and launched from the program
  • Import and export of data in a large number of file formats
  • Option of working in several active workspaces at a time, enabling simultaneous work on multiple projects
  • Import of trace data files and quality scores from automated DNA sequening machines using Standard Chromatogram Format, ABI formats and PHD format (PHRED)
  • Bioinformatics features in Protein Workbench:
  • Alpha-helices and beta-sheets shown as annotations on the sequence.
  • 3D molecule view
  • Transmembrame helix prediction

  • Protein charge analysis and graphs
  • Reverse translation from protein to gene (a number of translation tables)
  • Interactive translations of DNA and RNA to protein (both single sequences and alignments)
  • Proteolytic cleavage detection
  • Report of protein statistics (one or more proteins in each report)
  • Comprehensive report including a range of protein analyses in one document
  • Integrated UniProt searches (Swiss-Prot/TrEMBL)
