I have been using MacVector for some years and am reasonably happy with it.

HOWEVER I have recently added Assemblylign (meant to do alignments and
compilations of contigs etc etc for ~$A1,000) to the package and it is very
poor in its ability to align different sequences.  I can sometimes find 40
bases of TOTAL homology between two sequences by eye and the program cannot
do so.  I complained to Stratagene here in Australia about it last year
(October?) and they went to the US distributor.  So far I haven't heard
back from them.  So its not to good a program with poorer backup service.

Cheers, Klaus
