VIRS is an interactive web-based program designed for restriction endonuclease cut sites prediction and visualisation. The system permits to simultaneously process batch DNA sequences, and produces visual restriction maps with several useful options for users’ customisation. These options also perform in-depth analysis of the restriction maps, such as virtual electrophoretic result for digested fragments. Different from other analytical tools, VIRS not only displays visual outputs, but also provides the detailed properties of enzymes that are commercially avaialbe. All the information correlates with enzymes is stored in our database, which is updated monthly from the manufacturers’ websites.
