We have developed a collection of programs for manipulation and analysis of nucleotide and protein sequences. The package was written in Fortran 77 on a Sirius1/Victor microcomputer which can be easily implemented on a large variety of other computers. Some of the programs have already been adapted for use on a Vax 11. Our aim was to develop programs consisting of small, comprehensible and well documented units that have very fast execution times and are comfortably interactive. The package is therefore suitable for individual modifications, even with little understanding of computer languages.
