*** SEQTools version 8.2.097 released ***
SEQTools is a comprehensive, user-friendly software package for handling and
analysis of nucleotide and protein sequences.
SEQTools is a stand-alone Windows program designed to serve as the core
application for small and medium sized research groups which do not have
access to a dedicated bioinformatics department.
SEQTools has evolved in close cooperation with its about 1,000 users around
the world and is a very responsive software package, always open to user
SEQTools can be used free of charge for as long as you wish provided you
keep you registration alive by renewing your license every 60 days.
SEQTools runs on windows 2000 and XP systems - and informs you when program
updates are available to make sure that your installation is always up to

...accepts sequences in most formats (trace files, genbank, plain text,
multi-sequence flat files etc.)
...handles and analyses up to 10-20,000 sequences in a single project
...stores sequence annotation (search results, user comments etc.) in a

...performs unattended batch blast search at NCBI or on user created local
...auto-retrieve sequence annotation from Entrez
...performs sequence clustering with three different methods
...performs sequence alignments with Clustalw (and X)
...post-processes alignments with t-coffee, GeneDoc and TreeView
...performs local blasting of project sequences with a single key stroke
...includes facilities for EST sequence handling and publication

I believe that you will discover that SEQTools is a very flexible program
with smooth linking of the various functions enabeling you to carry out
complex analyses on sequences contained in a project with just a few
