SeqPup is a biological sequence editor and analysis program usable on the common computer systems including Macintosh, MS-Windows and X-Windows. It includes links to network services and external analysis programs.
+ multiple sequence alignment and single sequence editing
read and write several sequence file formats
+ easy hand alignment features including colored bases and sliding
* Internet sequence analysis services (e.g, GCG) by BOP and email methods
* automatic base calling from ABI or SCF trace files with autoseq app
automatic multiple sequence alignment with ClustalW app
automatic gel fragment alignment to contigs with CAP app
phylogenetic analysis of alignments with fastDNAml and LSADT apps
phylogenetic tree drawing with DrawTree and DrawGram Phylip apps
consensus, reverse, complement, degap, and distance/similarity operations
+ pretty print of alignments and sequences with boxed and shaded regions
translate dna to/from protein using various codon tables
+ find strings and ORFs
automatic preference saving
user-definable links to external analysis programs
(* new, + updated)
NOTICE: This release is still unfinish, and has bugs. It may be useful to you as is, but be warned that it is still prone to problems.
SeqPup is being written using DCLAP, a free and portable C++ class application framework. DCLAP is founded on the NCBI Toolkit, especially it's Vibrant user-interface section written primarily by Jonathan Kans. SeqApp/SeqPup was started in 1990 as sequence editor/analysis platform on which analysis programs from other authors could be easily incorporated into a useable interface.

June/July 96: version 0.6d release
+ "bopper" Internet protocol for client/server use of command line programs such as the GCG suite.
+ autoseq base calling app for reading ABI and SCF sequencer trace file data, plus base/trace editing functions.
+ Started expanding maximum sequence limit to 2 megabases (from about 30Kb), however most functions beyond viewing will still fail for >30Kb sequences.
+ Several bug fixes are included for mac, mswin, unix. Added background color in align view, minimum ORF size pref, improved tracking of changed data, improved align editing, save pretty print to PICT or text; fixed child app bugs; fixed mswin edit truncation to 255 bases; editable data tables in selection dialogs
