GenoCAD Quick Tip: Making Parts Libraries

Libraries: vast repositories of human knowledge and art. Quiet places of study and intellectual engagement. Call-backs to a long-forgotten age when stacks of bound paper, often called “books,” were a primary mode of transmitting information within a society.

Here at GenoCAD, we like to think of DNA as a language, with DNA parts making up the “words.” So, it’s appropriate that a digital library house your collection of parts. Here’s how you set it up:

  1. Log in to
  2. Click on “Parts and Grammars”
  3. Select the “Libraries” tab
  4. Click on the “New Library” button
  5. Select the associated genetic grammar
  6. Name the new library
  7. Click on the “Save” button
  8. Head to your local library and check out a book you’ve been wanting to read. Or just download it to your Kindle.
