ABI data extraction utilities

Dear Readers,

I have made available a software application, exTRACE, designed specifically
to extrace data records from ABI derived tracefiles (chromatograms) and
write them to separate files in a user selectable format (hex, bin or dec).
Pre-compiled binaries are availble for Unix (Solaris 2.7), DOS and 
Macintosh platforms. Also included with each package are two PDF files
describing 1. the organization of ABI tracefiles (directed primarily toward
programmers) and 2. descriptions of available data records (FLAGS) in ABI
GeneScan tracefiles. Although I focus on GeneScan type data, exTRACE works on
any tracefile processed with ABI software (e.g. 373, 377, 310 and 3700).

If interested, see the Bioinformatics sub-section at my website
