Coming soon – Case It v7 for Mac and PC

*The Windows version runs on the Mac OSX operating system via Wine Stable, included with the Case It download.

**Tamura K, Dudley J, Nei M & Kumar S 2007. MEGA4: Molecular Evolutionary Genetics Analysis (MEGA) software version 4.0. Molecular Biology and Evolution 24:1596-1599.

Case It v6.07 for PC

  • Works with any version of the Windows operating system
  • Automatically opens the MABL web site, which can be used in place of MEGA for bioinformatics analyses (MEGA can also be used if desired).
  • Includes all other features of Case It v6.06 below

Note: Case It v6.07 for the PC works with Windows 10, with one exception:  the feature that takes ‘gel photos’ does not work properly.  To capture photos of gels, the Snipping Tool of Windows 10 can be used.  The ‘gel photo’ feature works properly with all earlier versions of the Windows operating system.

Case It v6.07 for Mac

Note: The Mac version of v6.07 is not directly integrated with MEGA software, but rather uses the MABL web site for multiple alignment and tree-building. This web site allows one-click tree building, but is sometimes unavailable.  If that happens, the MAFFT web site can be used instead of MABL (Case It v7 includes direct links to both the MAFFT and MABL sites).

Case It v6.06 for PC

  • Works with any version of the Windows operating system
  • Automatically opens MEGA software for bioinformatics analyses (no direct links to bioinformatics web sites).
