What is the date and build is your installation? Look under "help –> about"

It sounds like you are not running the program as an administrator. Right-click on the program icon before you launch the program and choose "run as administrator".
Then try to import your .fasta file.

Hi Miriam,
the red link is for his slipstream update for older versions of the program. The black link is the only link you should need.
I am surprised that your program is running correctly if the executable is on your desktop. It needs to be physically located within in the DNA Master folder in the program files directory. This is why your student's version thinks it needs to download a bunch of supporting files via FTP— it is not in the right directory and it can't find its supporting files and databases.

It should connect to Jeffrey's site automatically just by clicking the button.

Hi Mary Ann,
You shouldn't need the slipstream update. That was to update versions of the program from before 2012. The current version of the program that is installed when you download from JEffrey's website does not need the slip stream update. If you did somehow manage to get an old version, you would unpack that file in the C:\Program Files (x86)\DNA Master directory.

His website was down a few times last week, which could have caused your FTP error. Have you tried again since then?

Hi Miriam,
It looks like her database files are missing. Tell her to pick restore from FTP. IT should download everything she needs and then she should no longer get the the error.

DNA Master runs just fine on Windows 10.

It sounds like you are all running/rerunning the installer program, rather than actually running the DNA Master program.
The installer is called dna master.exe while the actual program is DNAMas.exe (note the difference in capitalization and spelling).
After you install, the actual program file will be found in the directory C:\Program Files(x86)\DNA Master.
Make sure you launch the program by right clicking on the icon and selecting "run as administrator".

Please let me know if that is not your case—and Miriam, I can't figure out your comment about the link at the end of the paragraph and the Desktop. But I am glad your is working.

Best,
Welkin

Hi Tammy,
Yes, the program is trying to interact with the servers at NCBI to run glimmer and genemark in order to populate the table.

For a log, try the Event Manager, under Tools -> Database Managers.

hi All,
Yes, the server was down again this morning until about 11:30. It is back up now.

The cluster A phages have numerous 13bp sequence repeats found throughout the genome, most frequently within intergenic regions (only rarely are they located within genes). These sequences are binding sites for the immunity repressor, and they help prevent transcription elongation during lysogeny. Locating these sequences can help you choose the correct gene start, as the stoperators are mostly not within the genes. Stoperators are also heavily clustered at the right end of the genome, so don't feel you need to add protein encoding genes in all that "empty" space.
