CodonCode Aligner Licenses for Teaching

Educators who would like to use CodonCode Aligner in bioinformatics, genetics, molecular systematics, or similar university classes can apply for free temporary teaching licenses. Teaching licenses are generally intended for small, specialized classes, and for relatively short periods of time where CodonCode Aligner would be needed in class (e.g. 4-6 weeks).

Classroom use of CodonCode Aligner is simplified through the Aligner License Server. Instructors set up a single computer on which the Aligner License Server is installed, and enter a license key that allows concurrent use by all students and teaching assistants. License keys can are typically made available for only the weeks where CodonCode Aligner is needed.

Typically, at least one of the class instructors is already a CodonCode Aligner user, although this is not a requirement.

To apply for temporary teaching licenses, instructors should contact CodonCode Corporation by email and include the following information:

  • Name and university email address of the instructor
  • Course description
  • Duration of the course
  • Number of students
  • Start and end dates of the course
  • Dates when CodonCode Aligner will be needed for course
  • Description of how CodonCode Aligner will be used in course
  • Web links to the course syllabus, if available; otherwise, PDF documents or short descriptions

Instructors should also indicate how familiar they are with CodonCode Aligner, and if they own or have access to purchased licenses. Free teaching licenses are granted solely at CodonCode Corporation's discretion, and may not be granted to all applicants.
