I worked previously for IntelliGenetics (no longer have any
affiliation there) and do know that the MOLGEN software was the
precursor for the "IG Suite" of Sun and VAX molbiol programs which was
IG's first product line in the 80s.  If you want the early history of
MOLGEN, you can probably get this from Doug Brutlag at Stanford
(brutlag at cmgm.stanford.edu).
