ApE is a science application for plasmid editing by M. Wayne Davis. See here for more info http://www.biology.utah.edu/jorgensen/wayned/ape/.

It is a self contained EXE so there is no install. You need to create the program files folder and copy the software in. I have used the shortcut.exe tool http://ss64.com/nt/shortcut.html to make a desktop icon.

All settings for the app are stored in the users application data folder so they don't need admin rights to run it (yippee!).
