The QuickBasic program TRACTOR is used to locate clones in a
known sequence using only one sequencing reaction, a method
generally known as "T-tracking". The program can reduce workload
at the end stage of a sequencing project using the random
subcloning strategy.

A paper discussing the program will be published in Computer 
Applications in the Biosciences vol. 10, number 5. Interested 
parties are requested to take a look at my WWW page 

or contact me at jarnie at

The program is available by anonymous FTP at
as /pub/sci/molbio/msdos/ 

Incidentally, the Acknowledgements section of the paper thanks
among others, Dr. V. Jongeneel, Dr. S. Nedospasov, Dr. R. Harper _and_
