The Staden sequence analysis package

Mol Biotechnol. 1996 Jun;5(3):233-41. doi: 10.1007/BF02900361.


I describe the current version of the sequence analysis package developed at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, which has come to be known as the "Staden Package." The package covers most of the standard sequence analysis tasks such as restriction site searching, translation, pattern searching, comparison, gene finding, and secondary structure prediction, and provides powerful tools for DNA sequence determination. Currently the programs are only available for computers running the UNIX operating system. Detailed information about the package is available from our WWW site:
