The file extension DNA is associated with multiple programs and applications and various file types. The programs and applications include Computer Associates Backup and Migration, BioPerl DNA, SnapGene, GenePool, and DNA Probe. DNA files contain data and information related to the program that created the file.
If the DNA file extension is related to Computer Associates Backup and Migration, the file is categorized as a backup file type that contains information on application settings, system data, network printer information, PC files and folders, multimedia, and other content which makes up a PCâ€™s DNA.
When the DNA file is opened after transfer to another PC it automatically distributes the file to a new PC. CA Backup and Migration is a software application produced by Computer Associates which is capable of taking a complete DNA of your computer for the purpose of backup and restoration or transfer to a new PC.
DNA files which are associated with BioPerl are a data file type which contains Perl codes used for database searches as well as sequence and alignment objects. The contents of the DNA file are commonly used for biology computations. BioPerl is a project which uses Perl programming code for different purposes in the field of biology.
If the file extension DNA is part of SnapGene, the file is classified as a data file type which stores data used for DNA analysis. The contents of this type of DNA file can include comments, description, metadata, DNA sequences, and other pertinent information. SnapGene is a molecular biology software application created by GSL BioTech which is used for DNA analysis.
DNA files created with GenePool are a various data file type that contains information on virtual organisms which breed with other mates in a virtual environment. The result is a sub-population which propagates future generations. GenePool is simulation software which allows virtual organisms to develop swimming skills and genetic building blocks.
If the file extension DNA is associated with DNA Probe, the file is used to provide remote help desk support. This type of DNA file contains data which provides support for remote PCs connected to a network. DNA Probe is a software application produced by SupportSoft, Inc. which places a file in the root folder of the boot drive that is named net_save.DNA before the software automatically runs at boot up. It then catalogs a DNA profile of the PC which is requesting remote support for the purpose of troubleshooting and repair.
How to Open DNA Files
Since the DNA file extension is associated with multiple programs and applications, double click on the file to see if it will automatically open in a default program you have installed on your PC. DNA files can consist of different file types, so you may already have a program which will open the file.
DNA files which are part of CA Backup and Migration can be opened using the CA Backup and Migration software application or CA Desktop DNA Migrator. Both applications are available on the Computer Associates Technologies website and are designed for use with the Windows operating system.
If the file extension DNA is related to BioPerl, the file can be opened using the BioPerl software application which is available under the Perl Artistic License on the BioPerl.org website. BioPerl is compatible with Windows, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, Fedora, Ubuntu Server, and the Linux operating system.
DNA files which are related to SnapGene can be opened using the SnapGene software application or SnapGene Viewer. Both applications are available on the SnapGene website and are compatible with the Windows operating system and Mac OS X. SnapGene is available as a 30-day free trial, and SnapGene Viewer is a free download.
DNA files which are created with GenePool should be opened using the GenePool software application by JJ Ventrella. GenePool is also known as Darwin Pond and is available on the Swimbots website. GenePool is designed for use with the Windows operating system.
If the file extension DNA is associated with DNA Probe, the file can be opened using the DNA Probe software application which is available on the Consona website. SupportSoft was acquired by Consona, which is an enterprise software application company. DNA Probe is designed for use with the Windows operating system.
