We believe that all relevant research data sources should be easily connected to allow scientists using Labguru to conduct the smoothest, most efficient research. Enabling seamless data flow with Geneious Prime is another step in this long and important journey.

Labguru users who are into DNA design, sequencing, and analysis can now stream sequence data between Labguru and Geneious Prime using Geneious’ Open plugin architecture and Labguru’s open approach and architecture.

Streamlining sequence analysis and editing while simultaneously tracking and managing relevant stocks in one centralized system is now a reality.

There are two options that can be used by Labguru users:

1. A plasmids-submitting plugin:

This plugin will add a submit button to your Geneious Prime top bar. This, allows you to upload plasmids into Labguru plasmids collection simply by selecting the plasmid and submitting it.

This option requires you to authenticate with your user email address, password, and Labguru account number. To find the your account number go to Labguru->Settings->the account number will appear on the page URL. *Note that only admin users can access the account settings.

2. A listener plugin:

You can use this plugin to create a folder in Geneious Prime, and whenever a document is being added to this folder, it will be automatically synced with the inventory (plasmids collection) in your Labguru account.

This plugin uses the Workflow Editor Tool and allows you to further customize the connection between Labguru and Geneious Prime (it is an add-on feature).
