Dear John, 
User-unfriendly is a description of sequencher that I've never heard before.
We have sequenced literally millions of base pairs with it, including the
1.5 MB Aquifex genome , and never had any problem with Sequencer. It seems
like a very ituitive program to me. Alot of research assistants come through
the lab and they all seem to pick it up very quickly. I have to admit that I
am not familiar with LaserGene but I wouldnt want anyone to be discouraged
from trying the demo version of sequecher.
