sequence analysis software

The other two very good alternatives are Hitachi's MacDNAsis package with
ScanDNAsis (does gel scanning, automated sequence reading from scanned
gels) and Geneworks (Intelligenetics).  They both have demo's that can run
but not print or save.  We have LaserGene from DNA-Star, it is good but the
components are not well integrated enough (unlike the MacDNAsis and
Geneworks).  DNAsis can also do secondary structure predictions that is not
possible with the others (as far as I know).  I have no affiliation with
the above companies.
