GeneDoc's Purpose and Features.

GeneDoc is a full featured Multiple Sequence Alignment Editor and
Shading Utility. GeneDoc is also intended to help you bring your
genetics research work to publication with lots of shading, page and
font layout features.

GeneDoc is an alignment editor, that is it allows you to Edit the
Alignment so that different residues from each sequence are lined up
with each other. This is accomplished by moving the residues in one
(or all but one) sequence relative to the other sequences by inserting
or deleting gaps. GeneDoc also features the exclusive Grab and Drag
mode, arranging residues like beads on a string. The sequence residues
themselves are protected from accidental deletion, insertion, or
modification and cannot be edited. Built in DayHoff and BlockSum
scoring functions allow you to be sure your alignment changes are
improving the score. GUI implimentation makes it all so easy to use!

GeneDoc also provides a comprehensive range of Display Shading Modes,
functions and capabilities. Outlined below, these functions give
flexible ways to look at the data and to show important concepts.
Shading can even be done manually!

This is an editor that works with the output of the Genetics Computer
Groups (GCG) fine suite of programs for creating Multiple Sequence
alignments or can Import Fasta Format files to be saved as a .MSF file
