is an easy-to-use graphical user interface designed for the rapid interpretation of BLAST, BLAST-2 and FASTA output text files.

SEQtools is a comprehensive program package for handling and analysis of  nucleotide and protein sequences. The program includes a series of trivial functions to help you carry out common operations.

Special functions are included for design of microarray gene expression analysis experiments, for expression analyses with the SAGE procedure and for managing small EST projects. Utilities are  included for primer design and ordering, renaming files, creating codon usage tables, building local searchable databases, aligning nucleotide and protein sequences, comparing sequences and a lot more...


BioEdit is a biological sequence alignment editor written for Windows 95/98/NT.  A rich, intuitive multiple document interface with many convenient features  makes alignment, manipulation and viewing of sequences relatively quick and easy on your desktop computer.    Several sequence manipulation and analysis options and fully-automated links to local and WWW-based anaylsis programs facilitate an integrated working environment which allows you to view, align and analyze sequences from a single application with simple point-and-click operations.
