The only other "standard" fixed width font on the Mac is Monaco.  There
are other fonts that claim to be fixed width, but I have seen several where
a punctuation mark (like a period to represent a stop codon, a dash to show
a gap or a colon to show alignment) breaks the "fixed width" rule.

DNAStar's products for the mac include a nice fixed width font that they
had designed specially for representing macromolecules.  I recommend it.
