My vote is for a CAD program "The Gene Construction Kit"
It will do beautiful color maps and also good annotated sequence.
We keep files of all our constructs in this program.
Major disadvantage is that it's somewhat expensive.
You can get from Textco INc at 603 643 1471
The manual is somewhat briefer than  I would like but
if you go thru the tutorial, you should be
able to use it.
