Dear DNATools user,

An in creasing number of people have realised that DNATools is a quite
useful application for handling small (1 - 10,000 sequences) EST projects.
As a result of the feedback of the many users, dnatools has been gradually
adapted to suit their - and our - needs and wishes. One of the more recent
addition is a handy function for submission of EST sequences to GenBank.

The more specialised functions include a large collections of functions for
handling and analysing SAGE (serial analysis of gene expression) data. These
functions have been used extensively in our department recently and are now
quite efficient - and bug-free. Among the functions are facilities for
simultaneous comparison of up to 6 SAGE profiles and mapping SAGE profiles
with EST data. New is the possibility to transfer SAGE data to EST sequence
headers based on SAGEmapping file data - and to generate custom designed

The more trivial functions (translation, codon usage analysis, dot plot,
local and global blast, primer handling, design and ordering, searching with
complex search strings, etc.) have been continuously de-bugged and

As usual both the web manual and the context sensitive help is lagging quite
a bit behind the program. Perhaps in the future...

You can still use dnatools free of charge provided that you renew your
registration every four months - after the free 4-month trial period has
