Preparing a figure for a presentation or publication is always a fight with Powerpoint. You inevitably waste inordinate amounts of time trying to make your labels line up just right. Then it turns out you need to make revisions and the process starts all over. Never again, we hope.
When you upload a gel image, you can now tell Benchling to generate a figure for you and easily customize it.
Enter in your lane/band names, hit “Export Gel”, and a beautiful figure will be automatically generated.
Don’t forget, we have built in tools for cropping and adjusting brightness/contrast!
For more image-editing goodness, today we’re also announcing a new colony counting feature. Read more about it here.
