TED was written by Tim Gleeson (originally at the MRC) and LaDeana
Hillier (at Washington University), and is described in an in-press NAR
paper by those authors. It is a standalone program (independent of
the XDAP package) which provides editing and viewing capabilities 
for individual (i.e. non-aligned) automated sequencer trace files;
parts of it were incorporated into XDAP. It only runs on SPARCstations,
under X Windows, and can be obtained for free (for research purposes)
in the US by writing to lfw at elegans.wustl.edu.
