Greetings All, 

Please be informed that GeneDoc version 2.2 has been released to 
the GeneDoc web site. 


GeneDoc is freeware for PC/Alpha/Windows/3.1/95/NT

This version has many bug fixes and some fun new features. 

GeneDoc can now parse ProSite/ReBase files and find and shade motifs 
in your alignment. You can manually edit/add to the motif list as well.

An output to HTML option has been added that works very nicely. 

GeneDoc can write a RasMol coloring script, so that you can apply
shading in RasMol, as well an option to display sidechains for a 
selected set of colors. For example a script could put conserved 
mode shading onto a protein, set the display to ribbon mode and show 
sidechains where the alignment was 100% conserved.

More control over the amount of the sequence names to be displayed and 
other parts of the display has been added.

GeneDoc now parses, saves and displays branch and node weights from 
phylogenetic tree files.

The GeneDoc information in the header of the .MSF file has been changed 
and looks a lot better and is safer.

The complete list is appended below.

Once again, a great deal of changes and bug fixes are from user 
feedback. Thanks for all the kind words, support and suggestions.

Karl Nicholas.
