   Shamelessly self servingly self citing, you might peek at the the
nanoreview I recently posted, available directly from me or by gopher
and/or WAIS to the biosci archives.

   There are additional reviews on sequence analysis software, notably by
Peter Markiewicz, available from the Bio-archives.  His review (titled
pm-macinmolbio.txt on the Indiana archives (ftp.bio.indiana.edu) has a very
good introduction and covers more ground than my review.  I highly
recommend it.
   Dan Jacobson (danj at welchgate.welch.jhu.edu) recently posted a more
extensive review of public domain primer/oligo analysis programs, including
chunks from their documentation.  You can access this via gopher as well.

Good hunting,
