ForCon 1.0 for Win95/98/3.1 and Win NT 3.5/NT 4.0
-------------------------------------------------

ForCon is a user-friendly software tool developed for the easy
conversion of nucleic acid and amino acid sequence alignment formats. At
the moment, ForCon is able to convert – in both ways, i.e. reading and
writing - the following formats (or formats used by the following
software packages):

CLUSTAL
EMBL
FASTA
GCG/MSF
Hennig86
MEGA
NBRF/PIR
PAUP/Nexus
Parsimony Jackknifer
PHYLIP
TREECON

The following options are also included:

- A selection of sequences can be made.
- Partial alignments can be created by selecting certain regions or
codon positions.
- Output of a so-called ‘Pretty’ format for publication.

ForCon can be downloaded for free at:

Comments and/or suggestions are welcome.
