The Sanger Centre is pleased to announce the availability of the first
release of Artemis.

Artemis is a free DNA sequence viewer and annotation tool which is capable
of reading and writing complete EMBL entries.  Documentation, screenshots
and download instructions for Artemis are available from:



  Artemis is a DNA sequence viewer and annotation tool that allows
  visualization of sequence features and the results of analyses within
  the context of the sequence, and its six-frame translation. Artemis is
  written in Java, reads EMBL-format sequences and feature tables, and can
  work on sequences of any size from a few kb to entire genomes of 5 Mb or

Artemis distribution

  Artemis may be freely distributed under the terms of the GNU General
  Public License, and should run on any system with a recent version of
  Java, but it is currently best supported on UNIX.  Please note that,
  although we believe Artemis to be useful in its present form, it is
  still undergoing continuous testing and development.

Mailing list

  We welcome contributions to Artemis and suggestions for new features. An
  email discussion list has been set up for this purpose. To join, send a
  message to 'majordomo at sanger.ac.uk' with 'subscribe artemis' in the body
  (not the subject).  Announcements will also be sent to this list.


  The development of Artemis is funded by the Wellcome Trust's Beowulf
  Genomics initiative, through its support of the Pathogen Sequencing
