Hi - we have recently started to use DNAMAN from Lynnon Biosoft up in
Canada; it is remarkably full-featured (if a bit idiosyncratic), and
will do multiple sequence alignment, translation, dna frag assembly, PCR
primer and oligo design...it is also CHEAP ($260 or so). Works well
under Win 3.1 and is LIGHTNING fast on even long sequence multiple
alignments. Also does shading of alignments (another perennial q).
