I'd like to know what you consider to be the pros and cons of
ABI/Perkin-Elmer's AutoAssembler compared to Sequencher, which seems to
score so highly in this forum.
We've got demos of both programs, and they seem to do more or less the
Our raw data come mainly from an ABI 310.
Dear Newsgroupers ,
I have used both programs at great length , AutoAssembler I used a number
of years ago when I worked in London and Sequencher just a few minutes
ago ( and for the last year ) . I can say without a shaddow of a doubt
that unless Ann Arbor ( where Genecodes are based ) is spirited away from
the face of the earth by an alien invasion and Sequencher is no longer
avaliable I will remain using it . I would also like to add that the
probability of me going back to using AutoAssembler is about the same as
that of the Alien invasion occuring .
I cant express how much I like Sequencher and what a relief I have found
it to be able to use a sequencing analysis package that is not written in
reverse logic and that does not require you to have a copy of the
instruction guide perminantly on your desk .
I have copied the URL of the summary of the last software discussion on
this group to show that few things seemt o have changed :
I hope you buy a copy or two and never look back .
Yours Sincerely ,
PS I have no affiliation with Gene Codes other than being a proud user.
