Webcutter, a free on-line utility to restriction map DNA sequences, has
just been mirrored in Sweden thanks to the generosity of Dr. Tore
Samuelsson of the University of Goteburg.
Webcutter is available now for free and public use at
For those of you unfamiliar with the program, Webcutter is software you
run through your favorite WWW browser. It differs from other restriction
mapping programs primarily in its use of existing internet resources. For
example, it features:
* Automatic sequence search-and-input from NCBI's GenBank
* Monthly enzyme database updates from New England Bio Labs' REBASE
* Easy-to-use, customizable digests
* World-wide accessibility via internet
Webcutter eliminates the need to copy-and-paste your sequence from the
GenBank, and hassle of your software's enzyme database becoming outdated.
