We have someone here working on a program for unix/X windows that will cope
with complex restriction mapping problems - eg where there are large numbers
of sub experiments etc. It is designed more for the mapping side of things
rather than the construction of DNA. If you would be interested in trying
this out for us, you might like to send me some email. We are in a bit of a
catch 22 situation where we need to have it all working to get people to
use it, but to finsish it, we need to see what people want ! - so if you
even have some data you'd like us to run past it, feel free to mail it to us.
