Does anyone know of a software package, either for Mac or IBM, that will 
allow one to scan an image--for example, a photograph of an ethidium stained 
gel--and then perform densitometry calculations?  I would like to have a 
quantitative assessment of RT-PCR product, using the equipment I have at hand.

Any suggestions--software or alternative methods that have worked well for 
you--will be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,
