it doesn't do nearly all the things i want...it wasn't my decision). If
you have a UNIX machine, GCG works well, but not easy to use (nor is it
all-purpose...BTW, i haven't tried the graphic user interface yet). I hear
that DNA Strider (gene strider?) works quite well for most people's needs,
but is rather confusing at first to learn.
Again, it all depends what you want to do.
I recommend getting demo versions of all of the above, and others as well.
