Anthony and Mike,
We are working with a few different groups on better base-calling and
analysis software for the ABI 373. Perhaps they would be willing to
share their experience with you.
Germane to the parallel, rather silly discussion about file formats,
have you considered outputting your data in the Standard Chromatogram
Format [SCF] defined by Dere and Staden? Several other manufacturers are
adopting it. I will post the file format specification to bionet.soft-
ware.sources if you don't already have it.
