Welcome to CadBerry’s documentation!

CadBerry is an open-source IDE for synthetic biology built around a C++ version of the GIL compiler. CadBerry is still early in development, so built versions might be unstable.

If you’re new here, check out Getting Started for a quickstart guide.

Option 1: Bulding from source

Download the source code and use visual C++ 2020 to build. You may have some trouble with downloading submodules (this will be fixed soon).

Option 2: Just download the compiled folder

Download the BasicInstall folder or the CadBerrybinRelease-windows-x86_64Berry folder and run Berry.exe (you may get some errors if you download the Berry folder, if you do you should delete CDBLastProj.cfg and CDBProjectList.cfg)
