plasmid inventory control

One of our users wants a program that can keep track of the maps
of a 100 or so plasmids and has the ability to draw the plasmid,
name its parts, and give a reference if appropriate. She points
out that while programs such as MacVector will do some of this, 
they cost in the thousands of dollars and represent rather 
extreme overkill for what she wants to do. She says there's 
got to be something simpler that will do what she needs.

Any suggestions?

She's interested in a PC program, if possible, but if there's a
solution to her needs involving a UNIX program, we can install it
for her on our system, and we're also interested in Mac solutions. 
We have access to the GCG package and the IG Suite.
