View Quality scores:
Yes. The quality scores can be toggled on or off and are displayed above the peaks of the chromatogram as bars and values.
View raw data:
Within the Staden package there are other tools for sequence assembly, such as Gap 4 and 5 but not within Trev trace viewer.
Input file formats:
ABI, ALF, SCF, ZTR, CTF, Plain ASCII txt, Experiment (staden).
Output file formats:
SCF, CTF, ZTR, Experiment and plain txt.
Open multiple windows:
Yes. A second sequence identical to the sequence is generated and that sequence can be edited and exported.
ABI limits (regions outside of clear range region are displayed in gray):
you have the ability to manually shade the 5′ and 3′ ends of a sequence to perform a soft trimming of unwanted areas.
The Staden Package software that includes Trev trace viewer is free.
Trev trace viewer feels dated and lacks many features that other available trace viewing applications have. The quality bars and peaks can overlap which can be confusing.
