Hi - We're setting a Molecular Modeling Lab w/ 10 SGI Indigos and are
looking about for software.  I have some personal experience w/ Biosym's
Insight/Discover pkg, but none with Tripos' Sybyl (and relatives). It seems
that this is acommon "either/or" situation - I've not yet been able to find
someone with experience w/ both.

   Can anyone out there illuminate some of the strong and weak points of
each suite?  Or suggest alternatives that would be better suited for a
mixed teaching / reseach basis?

   If you have the info but you'd rather not spend the afternoon typing,
please send your phone number and I'll call when it's convenient.

   As Always, a summary to the net will follow if I receive significant

Thanks very much,
