Does anyone have any suggestions for some good Unix-based (mostly Sun, HP, linux), interactive biological/evolutionary systems-level software thatmight be useful in BIO 100-level undergraduate courses?

I am helping a Biological Sciences department decide what computing platform they should choose for a new facility, and clearly the software should drive the decision.  We have a special interest in software that will help students to develop more student
-centered, self-paced learning solutions.
