Try the Fristensky Sequence Analysis Package.  These programs are not as
fancy, in terms of having graphic user interfaces, as some of the
commercial packages, but rather employ system-independent menus which are
pretty self-explanatory. In general, but they do most of what you need to do
for DNA sequencing.
