I have used PRIMER which I think is very good.  It was written by
Stephen E. Lincoln, Mark J. Daly and Eric S. Lander
MIT Center for Genome Research and
Whitehead Institute for biomedical Research
Nine Cambridge Center
Cambridge, Massachusetts 02142

Write to "Primer c/o The Lander Lab" at the above address
or E-mail to
primer at genome.wi.edu (Internet)  or
lander at mitwibr (Bitnet)
or FAX 617-258-6505 and tell them what you want to run PRIMER on I am
sure that they will send you a copy.
  I hope that this is of help.
