We are just starting an EST project (sugar-cane). Despite the fact that
I do think Staden is far much more complete than phred/phrap/consed (and
I have a personal bias in loving the former), the solution found to
manage data here was to use the latter (phred/phrap) to analyze and
generate the fasta files we need. All requirements proposed in your
message are done by scripts that call components of phred/phrap.
I would be very interested in hearing from anyone using Staden in
