Hi All

I have spent some time investigating BIOEDIT and it appears to be
relatively powerful.

However it does have it's weakness in particular it's in ability to reverse
complement a sequence when using CAP.

Is any one aware of a Software package similar to Staden but for the PC.  A
collaborator of ours dose not appear to have access to unix servers etc.

Any suggestions would be welcome.

Thank you for your time
