The earlier versions of my program DAMBE included a DLL compiled from
readseq (readseq2.dll) that include functions callable from VB, but I no
long keep the earlier versions of DAMBE. If you know someone who still runs
an early version of DAMBE, then you can ask them for the readseq2.dll in
their windows\system directory and I will tell you how to make calls.

The new versions of DAMBE includes extensive sequence utilities much beyond

I have released a new version of DAMBE with many enhancement and a
comprehensive help system. The software is available from my web site:


DAMBE is an integrated software package for retrieving, organizing,
manipulating, aligning, graphically displaying, and analyzing molecular
sequence data. Many tools for comparative sequences analysis and extensive
tests of alternative phylogenetic hypotheses have been implemented.
Although DAMBE is mainly for molecular sequence data, allele frequency
data can also be used by DAMBE for calculating genetic distances or
phylogenetic reconstruction. 

DAMBE runs on Windows 95/98/NT (including the MACs that installed the
virtual PC software).

Two installation problems have been addressed by Microsoft and I have
included the links to the Microsoft solutions related to DAMBE
