Genome Compiler is a genetic design software produced by Genome Compiler Corporation. Genome Compiler is a GUI meant for scientists in the fields of genetic engineering, molecular biology and synthetic biology, providing a tool for DNA design and visualization, data management, collaboration and seamless DNA ordering. Genome Compiler software is also used by pharmaceutical, biotechnology, academic, and clinical researchers. Genome Compiler is free of charge for academic users, available online for Microsoft Windows and Macintosh platforms.
The software was prevalent in mainstream media in May 2013 due to its association with a Kickstarter initiative to create glowing plants with synthetic biology.
