ABSTRACT
BioEdit is one of the most common program used in molecular biology studies. It was developed initially as a biological sequence alignment editor written for Windows only. It contains many features for sequence alignments modes of easy hand alignment, Split window view, user defined color, information based shading and auto integration with other programs such as ClustalW and Blast. However, in the last few years it was developed dramatically to integrate many other features and functions and useful molecular tools for molecular biologist such as several modes of hand alignment, plasmid drawing and annotation, restriction mapping and much more. It became one of the widely used programs in molecular biology with its multipurpose toolsin molecular biology. The freeware license and its efficient up to date modules beside its quick ability to produce results make it one of the most popular programs for molecular biologist nowadays.
