A possibility for MS-DOS is AXOVACS by Axon Instruments, Inc. 1101 Chess
Drive, Foster City, CA 94404 Phone 415-571-9400 FAX 415-571-9500.  I am
planning to use it for part of my computational biology course next
semester.  Dr. Hillel Chiel of Case Western Reserve University suggested
it to me - he has written a "computer lab" assignment using it for a
course he teaches.  He is also using a MAC program called CWRUSIM to
have students do homework assignments involving action potential
simulation.  He can be contacted at 216-368-3846 or hjc at po.cwru.edu. 
Both Dr. Chiel's work and mine in computational biology curriculum
development are supported by grants from the Howard Hughes Medical
Institute.
