	Yes Juergen, there is a little shareware for DOS called SILMUT, that 
you can find at ftp.bio.indiana.edu. It will take your aminoacid sequence and 
generate a map of possible restriction sites. You can edit the input file 
containing the restriction sites and enzymes names. If you need more 
information, just ask...
