The GCG program PLASMIDMAP is able to draw plasmids. If the sequence
is available, PLASMIDMAP input can be generated from MAP; otherwise,
you have to fiddle with an ASCII editor (it's not too difficult when
you have got used to it). PLASMIDMAP can add a few lines of text to
the plasmid drawing, if this is sufficient for the reference.

AFAIK there is no free plasmid drawing program for Microsoft Windows.
I'm not sure about programs for DOS.
