CAP is available with various Windows software (eg BioEdit from, but it
runs as a "DOS box", or whatever the Win2K equivalent is called.  CodonCode
( have a 30 uses trial version of Phred/Phrap and a
commercial version.  If you're dealing with a lot of sequence (eg genome

A commercial port of Staden for Windows is supposed to be on the way-anyone
