Does SnapGene have a Map to Reference Assembler?

SnapGene does not have a map to reference assembler that can be used to generate a consensus for a sequence based of assembly of reads against a reference.

SnapGene does have the Align Sequences to a Reference tool. This tool can align multiple reads to a reference. Unlike a map to reference assembler, each read is aligned to the reference independently, the reads are not aligned to one another in order to create a consensus sequence.
