There are various works which are freely available for molecular
biology data analysis, for Wintel, Mac, Unix and others.  I don't
know of one free set which is comprehensive.  You can read the
back issues of bionet.software for suggestions of various sets
of free software which will do what you need (see e.g.,
http://iubio.bio.indiana.edu/Network-News/ for back issues of 

You will find a variety of free molecular biology software at
archives such as IUBio Archive 
also mirrored at 
or the EBI server at {ftp,http}://www.ebi.ac.uk

One free molbio analysis framework that I've been developing
over 7 years now is called SeqPup.  You will find it
at ftp://iubio.bio.indiana.edu/molbio/seqpup/.  The current
verison works on macs, wintels, xwindows.  It has various bugs
on each platform.  I hope to develop a java version, which will
have a different set of bugs, in the coming months.  
SeqPup includes multiple alignment methods, restriction maps,
and phylogenetic analysis methods.  It doesn't yet handle any
plasmid drawing.
