I have been collaborating with a top Russian group in Novosibirsk. They
have developed a set DOS programs to work with huge (viral) sequences. An
ingenious  combination of manual adjusting and local similarity searches
is used for sequence alignement.

They are very eager to develop the programs further and to convert them
to other platforms.
