Ron, we've just received several packages of WinGenesys, since my
instituion (MIT) bought a site license (MIT is almost soley Macs; The
company that makes WinGensys figured that they really wouldn't be losing
much money with the site license; and I think we are being used as
beta-testers!!). It lists for around $1300. Comes with many modules,
which may be ordered separately. I was more interested in producing good
plasmid map drawings. However, it has all of the standard stuff:
translation, restriction enzyme, protein structure prediction, etc. We
have access to the wisconsin gcg package via a mainframe, so I haven't
played with much of the program other than the mapping and restriction
