Summary for Mac Sequence Analysis Software Request

Hello! Folks:
I posted an request a week ago. Thanks to Doug and David I have had the
information I need. The following is a summary of what I have learnt so far.

1. HyperCard
For current version, contact Doug. For downloading a somewhat older version
@ ftp.bio.indiana.edu /molbio/mac/dnastacks_1xx.hqx where xx is some
version number (current is n7). Practice on DNA file in the folder Sample
Input & Output/Aligner Sample Data, to get the named string format required.
Go to a "utility card" in DNA Translator stack and choose "String Nucleotides"
from the Convert menu. Somewhere in the resulting dialog there is a
"Similarity Matrix" (?) or similarly named choice.

The following is the original message I posted on the net.

Hello! Netters:

   Would anyone know where I could FTP/Fetch/Gopher a Macintosh version
DNA/protein sequence analysis program which allows me to get the actual numbers
(XX%) for the homology between two or more sequences? We have MacVector here.
But it does not do it, instead it only aligns two sequences and I have to
count the identical residues in order to get the numbers. Thanks!
