Utility to select restriction enzymes for inverse PCR?

Another thought then, would be to use the map command in GCG, but include the maxcuts
and mincuts commands. In your case you could select maxcuts = 1 (or maybe 0 would
work) and it would exclude all enzymes that cut more than that. I don't know however
if GCG is available on a web site anywhere, but a lot of places do have GCG loaded

hope that helps
