	DNA/GUI, a graphical user interface for quantitative imaging and
analysis of images of 1D electrophoretic gels and autoradiograms,
is an X-Window-System-based package designed to run on UNIX workstations.
It has been compiled and tested on DECstations and SPARCstations.

	DNA/GUI is described in:  H.A. Drury et.al.,
"A Graphical User Interface for Quantitative Imaging and Analysis of
Electrophoretic Gels and Autoradiograms",
BioTechniques, Vol. 12, No. 6, June, 1992, pp. 892-901.

	The software features automatic lane and band detection,
a spatial-normalization algorithm, and the ability to display
full images or lane-only images from previous analyses.
A flexible editing system helps with difficult and noisy images.
Output is an ascii file of lane-by-lane band fragment sizes and mobilities.
A User's Guide is available with the software.

	The software is available free of charge.  Please send your
name, title, and affiliation to  dnagui at wubcl.wustl.edu .
You will be given ftp directions for retrieving the software.	



The Biomedical Computer Laboratory (BCL) is designated as a "Resource for
Biomedical Computing" by the National Institutes of Health's National Center
for Research Resources (NCRR).  A significant portion of the activities at the
BCL are supported by NCRR's Biomedical Research Technology Program (BRTP) which
promotes the application of advances in computer science and technology,
engineering, mathematics, and the physical sciences to research problems in
biology and medicine by supporting the development of advanced research
technologies.  In addition to supporting the development of new or improved
technologies, the BRTP resource program encourages the use of those 
developments in collaborative research with biomedical research investigators
nationally through both collaborative interactions and service-oriented
relationships.  The most recent progress report of the BCL, as well as
other information, is available by anonymous ftp from the address listed below.
