Hi netters,

We have been looking at software that will allow us to compare scanned
images of RFLP and RAPD gels.  Two packages that look particulary useful
are "Dendron" from Solltech and "Gel Manager" from Biosystematica.  They
both seem to have very similar functions yet there is a huge difference
in price, $10,000 (Australian) and  $2,000 respectively.  If anyone has
had any experience with either of these programmes or others like them we
would greatly appreciate any comments.  The cost of these packages
represents a considerable investment and we really dont want to buy a
lemon!  

Thanks in advance
