The Fristensky Sequence Analysis Package (formerly Cornell
Sequence Analysis Package) has proven to be a
versatile, reliable, and highly portable suite of programs for
sequence analysis. At the heart of the package is NUMSEQ, a
sequence manipulation program that provides a large number of
options for presentation of sequence data, as well as
facilitating simulation of operations such as translation,
subcloning and ligation. Restriction search programs predict
fragments and ends from single or multiple, complete or parital
digests. Rapid matrix similarity searches perform quantititive
comparisons of nucleic acid and protein sequences. Programs for
base/amino acid composition and ORF analysis are also provided. 
Programs are compatible with IUPAC-IUB ambiguity conventions, and can
read a wide variety of sequence file formats.

Most FSAP programs can now be run from GDE, the Genetic Data Environment
of Steven Smith.  

C code is now available for the following platforms and compilers:
      SunOS         cc,gcc
      IBM/AIX       xlc,gcc
      HP/UX         cc 

Code may run with other comilers as well.

Files may be obtained by anonymous FTP:

An MS-DOS version is also available in this directory.
