A gopher search of Seqanalref (on merlot.welch.jhu.edu) finds the following
entry which may be of interest.
RA Usdin K.;
RT "Hypercard-based data management tools for molecular biologists.";
RL Comput. Appl. Biosci. 8:107-111(1992).
KW NUCLEIC ACID; CLONE MANAGEMENT; DATA ENTRY; APPLE MACINTOSH.
I have designed a Macintosh data management system for molecular
biologists. This system, called DataMinder, can be used to store
information about oligonucleotides, nucleic acid or protein sequences,
recombinant DNA clones, cells, reagents and protocols. DataMinder is not
limited to data storage. A number of utilities for data analysis are
provided, including those for the evaluation of oligonucleotides for use as
hybridization probes or primers for DNA synthesis, and a variety of
sequence editing features. Context-sensitive help is available on-line.
DataMinder is simple to use and to customize and allows for sharing of
database information across a computer network.
You can retrieve DataMinder a number of ways - one would be to
point your gopher client at merlot.welch.jhu.edu and select:
--> 13. Search Databases at Hopkins (Vectors, Promoters, NRL-3D, EST, OMIM../
--> 4. Search BOING (Bio Oriented INternet Gophers) <?>
and search for:
then you can just retrieve the resulting dataminder.hqx file.
Another method would be anonymous ftp to sunbcd.weizmann.ac.il
in the /pub/software/mac directory.
Best of luck,
