I have coded a little program that should compile on most unix machines
for introducing gaps into DNA sequences according to where they appear
in an amino acid alignment. It is available as C source code or
compiled for the PowerPC at:
Its neither elegant nor fancy (none of my code is!) and I cannot provide
any guarantees, but...
Bill Pearson also distributes a program called mrtrans (I think) which
also does this. It is available from:
ftp://ftp.virginia.edu/ (I hope that's correct).
p.s. read the documentation with putgaps!!!
