Hi William

Just look at http://www.informaxinc.com/
Their Vector NTI Software works on MAC and PCs - and does a really good job
The Mac version (a colleague of mine has owned) seems to work a little bit
slower than the PC version ..
Especially the Internet connectivity features (sequence from programm is
automatically pasted e.g. in a localy installed blast html page, submitted -
the search results can be imported back into the programm and will be
graphically interpreted using all the genbank qualifiers) are very useful
for my special purposes. I´ve heard that their new version will include
protein sequence analysis features (v.4 was mainly focused on
DNA-sequences) - but then Vector NTI is hard to beat.
